A Cotulla man was taken into custody on charges of attempted capital murder following a chase through county roads involving multiple agencies early Wednesday morning, January 30.

Frio County Sheriff’s deputies place Uvaldo Garcia III, 38, into custody following a lengthy chase after Garcia failed to pull over during an attempted law enforcement traffic stop at about 1 a.m. on FM 117 West near Dilley.

According to a FCSO report, Garcia, the alleged driver, refused to stop and a pursuit ensued through several county roads. The report alleges that Garcia fired approximately six shots at the FCSO Cpl. giving chase.

“For a brief moment deputies lost site of vehicle due to lots of dust from the county road,” the officer said in the report. “After awhile the same vehicle was coming out of a ranch, this time with a female driver.”
