MEDIA ADVISORY/NEWS RELEASE
On Tuesday, December 10, 2019, at approximately 1145 hours, Haltom City Officers were made aware of a stolen truck tractor that was being tracked by GPS. The vehicle, a beige 2014 Volvo truck tractor, was located by officers eastbound on NE Loop 820. When the vehicle reached the area of SH183 and Norwood, officers initiated a traffic stop. The driver of the vehicle failed to yield and led officers on a pursuit through multiple cities. The pursuit went through Hurst, Richland Hills, Haltom City, Fort Worth, Saginaw, and returned to Haltom City, where the suspect stopped the vehicle at the intersection of Broadway and Aurora. The suspect fled the vehicle on foot and was taken into custody by officers after a short foot pursuit. The suspect suffered minor injuries during the apprehension, and medics were called to the scene. The suspect was transported to North Hills Hospital for treatment of his injuries.
The vehicle, which was reported stolen out of Fort Worth, was released to the owner. No officers sustained injuries as a result of the pursuit. During the pursuit, two civilian vehicles were hit by the fleeing driver in Hurst by North East Mall. No injuries were reported in that collision. The driver of the stolen vehicle was identified as Travis Andrew Brandon, 34 years of age. No mug shot was available at the time of this release. He faces several charges from both Haltom City and Fort Worth, where the original offense occurred, including Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle and Evading Arrest with a Vehicle.
