The Texas Department of Public Safety is asking the public for help in finding a man who ran away from a traffic arrest.

On November 11 at around 2:20 a.m., a DPS trooper stopped a 2013 Hyundai Elantra on Interstate 35 in Hays County for speeding.

The driver, however, evaded arrest and fled the scene, driving recklessly.

The vehicle eventually came to a stop at Granada Drive and Catalina Drive but all three occupants of the car fled on foot.

That’s when the DPS helicopter and Austin Police K9 assisted.

23-year-old Jose Olivo Beltran, the driver, and 26-year-old Veronica Tijerina, the front passenger, were both then caught and placed under arrest.

However, officials weren't successful in finding the third suspect. He is still unidentified.

If you have any information, please contact Crime stoppers.
