The Hunt County Sheriff’s Office arrested a suspect, and one is still at large after a high-speed pursuit on Thursday morning.
According to reports, around 9 a.m. on July 15, the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies attempted to stop a vehicle that was occupied by David Anthony Piepenburg, who has outstanding warrants out of Hunt County for Harassment and Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
“Piepenburg, driving a black Kia, led officers through the Commerce area on Hwy 50 and then onto I-30 and through the grass median at speeds up to 120 m.p.h. Piepenburg eventually stopped in the middle of the 2600 block of I-30, exited the vehicle he was driving, and fled on foot into a wooded area,” said the department in a statement.
After fleeing on foot, Piepenburg stole a truck with a trailer attached and continued to evade officers. As Piepenburg was fleeing in the stolen truck, items from the trailer were falling onto the roadways.
Officers lost sight of the truck due to heavy traffic and debris in the roadway and later located the unoccupied truck and trailer at Stanford and St. John Street in Greenville.
“The black Kia that Piepenburg was driving was also occupied by a passenger who was arrested on scene on charges of Possession of Marijuana and Fraud use/poss of ID info.”
Piepenburg is still at large. If you have any information on this suspect’s location, please contact the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office at 903-453-6838. You can remain anonymous by contacting Hunt County Crime Stoppers at 903-457-2929 or by mobile app: P3Tips.com. DO NOT APPROACH
