Allen Police took a 32-year-old man into custody after a chase that ended in a residential neighborhood near Alma Drive and Rainforest Lane in Allen.

At approximately 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 20, Allen Police received a 9-1-1 call from a motorist traveling on U.S. 75 near Bethany Drive. The motorist alleged that another driver shot at him while driving north through Plano. The complainant followed the suspect vehicle, exiting west on Exchange Parkway as Allen officers were dispatched.

Before officers reached them, the suspect crashed into two vehicles on Alma Drive at Rainforest Lane, then fled on foot into the Beacon Hill neighborhood. Allen Police officers quickly established a perimeter and used the department’s drone unit to track the suspect’s movements through several backyards.

Vance Herbert, DOB: 6/10/1989, was apprehended without incident in the 400 block of Spinnaker Drive. He was arrested on two counts of fleeing the scene of an accident and one count of evading officers on foot. Herbert was also wanted on six warrants by Dallas Police.
