Officers pursued three suspects by vehicle and foot Monday morning near Decatur before detaining them. Wise County Sheriff Lane Akin said a deputy attempted to make a traffic stop on a pickup northbound on U.S. 81/287 several miles south of Decatur around 8:20 a.m. The pickup failed to yield and sped away from the deputy. During the pursuit, the truck’s occupants threw what appeared to be drugs out the window. As the chase neared Decatur, the truck turned into a pasture just south of town and the occupants fled on foot. Three people were caught and taken into custody. Officers went back to the scene and found about a 1/2 pound of methamphetamine as well as stolen property. The Texas Department of Public Safety also assisted with the pursuit.
