UPDATE: Corpus Christi police said two men, Justin Sims, Adrian Perez, and a juvenile were arrested last night. Police added they also found another stolen vehicle at the scene and that the investigation is still ongoing.

Corpus Christi police say two men and a juvenile face serious charges after crashing a stolen truck and being possibly involved in a couple burglaries across the city.

Police said around 8:30 p.m. Monday, they saw a truck that was reported stolen and pursued the vehicle near the Buccaneer Apartments.

Lieutenant Javier Cantu, with the Corpus Christi police department, said men bailed from the stolen truck and it smashed into a parked car.

After a foot pursuit, two suspects were arrested at the scene and the third suspect was taken to the juvenile detention center.

Inside the truck, police said they found several items that were reported stolen in other burglaries and are processing the evidence so they can return the items to the burglary victims.

Lt. Cantu said the suspects face evading charges and once their investigation is complete, they could face face several charges.
