They may have thought they could out run the law. But it didn't take long for SAPD to change their minds.
Just after 2:00 Sunday morning an officer spotted a vehicle leaving the Furr's Buffet on Highway 151 near Loop 410.
Since the restaurant was closed, police became suspicious and attempted to stop the vehicle. But, the driver took off, leading police a high speed chase that lasted about 10 minutes.
Police say the driver ran a stop sign on White Cliff and crashed into a security fence at the Lackland annex.
One suspect was caught immediately. A second was found on base with the help of SAPD's Blue Eagle helicopter, military police and K-9's.
A third was caught a short time later.
Police say the vehicle the three suspects were had commandeered was registered in Houston and had been stolen from the downtown area Saturday night.
They said the suspects had used a crowbar to try to gain access to Furr's. They said the suspects tried to break into the safe when the restaurant's alarm went off and they fled the scene. Now police are trying to figure out where the suspects picked up the cash register that was found inside their vehicle.
Authorities say the suspects, who are reportedly all in their 20s, are now facing multiple charges, including evading arrest, fleeing and burglary of a building.
