31-year-old Yance Young of Beaumont Texas was arrested and is being held on multiple felony and misdemeanor charges after a police chase ends on foot.
On Tuesday, June 27th, at approximately 3 P.M., Beaumont City Police and Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Deputies attempted to pull over Young as he was driving a Nissan Altima on I-10N. According to the police, Young refused to pull over, which led to a pursuit through northern Beaumont. The pursuit continued until they reached the 1200 block of North 11th Street, at which time he had stopped the vehicle and continued to attempt to evade the police. After a brief chase, the pursuing officers apprehended Young.
Young was found to be in possession of what the police believe to be 6 grams of methamphetamine and an unspecified amount of heroin. The officers then verified that the Nissan Altima that Young had been driving was recently reported stolen from Orange Texas.
Young is currently being held in Jefferson County Jail on charges of possession of controlled substances, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, evading arrest with a motor vehicle, and evading arrest.
