A 26-year-old man led area law enforcement agencies on a multi-county chase Monday night.
Travis County officials arrested Cole Juarez Flores following the lengthy chase. Officials say Flores fled a traffic stop at about 9 p.m. in the city of Burton. That’s about 80 miles east of Austin in Washington County.
Officials said multiple agencies chased Flores through Bastrop and Williamson counties and into Travis County where the Austin Police Department dispatched its helicopter to assist in the pursuit. The Travis County SWAT team took Flores into custody just before 11:30 p.m. when he pulled into a Chevron station in Pflugerville.
Officials said it’s unclear why Flores fled.
