Woman arrested after high speed chase in Killeen
KILLEEN, TX — The Killeen Police Department is investigating a robbery that occurred Friday afternoon, where one suspect was taken into custody while the other remains at large.
According to the police report, officers responded to a call at 4:17 p.m. in the 900 block of West Central Texas Expressway to assist with a female who had just been robbed. While officers were enroute, a witness called and advised they were behind a black Dodge Charger, with the suspects inside, in the area of Stan Schlueter and Highway 195.
