HOUSTON, TX - A chase in southwest Houston brings out the dogs and the helicopter. Just before midnight on Tuesday, an officer tried to pull over a car that had been reported stolen. The driver took off, eventually pulling into a yard at 10300 Cook Rd. and bailing.

"[HPD] set up a perimeter. Using a helicopter, they located the suspect hiding on the roof of a house two or three houses to the east," said Lt. Larry Crowsen.

Officers swept in and arrested the suspect. They say he left a gun up on the roof where he'd been hiding.
