Law enforcement encourage residents to check gate locks for suspicious activity

A series of pursuits come to an end in the Live Oak County area

LIVE OAK COUNTY, Texas – Local law enforcement have encouraged residents to check gates for any suspicious activity following a series of pursuits in the area.

On Tuesday night, the Operation Lone Star Taskforce member agencies assisted Live Oak County Sheriff’s Office and DPS as a series of pursuits came to an end in Live Oak County.

The Goliad County Sheriff’s Office called in DPS air support out of San Antonio while responding to the area.

The driver fled from the Live Oak Sheriff’s Office, wrecked on a rural road and then fled on foot. After an extensive search, units were unable to locate the driver.

Officials searched the vehicle and discovered tools used to gain access to gates and buildings. They also found a new padlock in the center console.

Law enforcement believe that this organization may be related to the recent cutting and attempted cutting of locks in the area. On Tuesday, the GCSO responded to the Weesatche area for a call of a lock on a gate being cut an replaced with another lock.

The Goliad County Sheriff’s Office encourages you to check your gates for suspicious activity and call them if you see something.
