Roger Ray Wilson, 49, of Garland, Texas

Sulphur Springs Police Department Communications advised of a burglary in progress at the Super Handy convenience store on Gilmer Street early Sunday morning. The subjects involved fled the scene in a gray 2009 Ford Escape.

Hopkins County Sheriff’s Deputy Shea Shaw located the vehicle traveling westbound on Interstate 30. The vehicle proceeded without yielding for approximately a mile before stopping at the 121 mile marker. Deputy Shaw made contact with Roger Ray Wilson, 49, the driver of the vehicle, and an unnamed passenger and asked them to exit the vehicle for questioning. After briefly speaking with the two subjects, the passenger fled north across IH-30 into the woods. Wilson then followed the fleeing subject.

Department of Public Safety’s Air Support was contacted to assist in the search.¬†The DPS search helicopter located Wilson hiding in the brush inside the woods just north of the initial stop location. Wilson was then taken into custody and transported to the Hopkins County Jail where he was placed on $35,000 total bond: $20,000 for Evading Arrest with previous convictions; $15,000 for Burglary of a Building.

The search continues for the remaining suspect who fled the scene Sunday morning.
