HOUSTON— The Houston Police Department is searching for a suspect accused of robbing a barber shop and leading police on a high speed chase Thursday.

Police arrived to find a Chevy Impala leaving the scene, which sparked a high speed chase. The driver led police down Hillcroft and turned on Westheimer crashing into two cars that were stopped at a red light on Westerland.
The suspect jumped out of the car, leading police on a foot chase through a nearby apartment complex.
Police set up a perimeter, but could not find him.
The TV’s were found in the car and returned to the Barber Shop.
