ECTOR COUNTY - It was a two for one bust on Friday afternoon for Ector County deputies when a high speed chase turned up two stolen vehicles.

The chase ended on 97th and Lamar, near Barbara Jordan Elementary School. The culprit, Nathanael Allard, reached speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. The truck he was driving, crashed into a home, knocking down a column. But that wasn't the end of it.

"They chased him on foot through our yard and they caught him on the next street over," Mitchell Block, next door neighbor to the home that was damaged, said.

The truck Allard was driving was reported stolen out of the Mineral Wells area last month. In the bed of the truck was a Yamaha motorcycle, reported stolen out of Midland. Block said the more deputies searched, the more they found.

"He had guns inside the car, I see them load up bullet casings and they also said over on Skyline he dumped a bunch of ammo and some other stuff," he said.

After the scene was cleared, Block claims deputies asked him to deliver the news to his neighbor.

"The sheriff's office left and asked me to tell them what happened," he said. "They left a business card in his door."

Allard was taken to a hospital. Once he's discharged, he will be taken into custody. At this time, charges are still pending.
