Man Leads Deputies in Chase In Stolen Front End Loader

A man is in custody following a bizarre crime spree in far northwest Bexar County, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

It started when a man  stole a pickup truck that had been left running at I-10 and Tarpon Road in Fair Oaks Ranch.

Apparently, the man decided he wanted a more heavy duty ride, so he drove to a construction site at I-10 and stole a front end loader.

That's right, a front end loader.

Behind the wheel of this powerful, but not particularly fast, piece of construction equipment, the man led Bexar County deputies on a chase up I-10 and into Boerne, where he was quickly apprehended.  

San Antonio Police and Kendall County Deputies also participated in the pursuit.

No word on what the man's motivation was, if any.
