3 arrested, 2 on the run after Saturday morning high-speed chase

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Three women are in custody -- two of which have been identified as Emily Ybanez and Felecity Esparza, and another juvenile --  after a high-speed chase through east Lubbock early Saturday morning in a pickup truck.

Two suspects who initiated the chase have still not been found, but authorities believe they are both Hispanic males, according to the Lubbock Police Department.

As of now Ybanez, Esparza and the juvenile have been charged with evading.

Lubbock police initially responded to a call at around 1:45 a.m. in the area of 600 East Broadway after multiple shots were heard coming from the north side of Mackenzie Park. An officer saw a truck driving at a high rate of speed while committing multiple traffic violations.

That officer tried to stop the truck, but it kept going, fleeing from the officer, south on MLK Boulevard. Police believe it was somewhere around 43rd Street and Avenue S that Ybanez, Esparza and the juvenile jumped from the truck.

Police were able to find the juvenile on 43rd Street and Avenue S, while the other two were hiding in the backyard of a house on the 1700 block of 43rd Street.

The truck has been described as a slightly beaten up older model Ford.

Police are asking anyone with information on the whereabouts of the two individuals to call Crime Line at 806-741-1000. KCBD NewsChannel 11 will update this story as more information becomes available.
