KERR COUNTY – Victor Alejandro Ramirez-Tapia, 24, was arrested after a multi-department high-speed chase from Kerr County to Bandera County, according to the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office.
KCSO detailed that on June 6, Kerr County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Deputies and Investigators received information that Ramirez-Tapia was in the 5800 block of Highway 27 in Center Point. When deputies responded to the scene, they reported that the suspect fled on foot, got into a green Jeep Cherokee and took off at a high rate of speed headed towards Comfort.
Once additional troopers with the Department of Public Safety and the Bandera County Sheriff’s Office were informed of the situation, the Department of Public Safety in Bandera County deployed spike strips.
KCSO said Ramirez-Tapia’s vehicle eventually hit the spikes which caused him to crash the vehicle before running from the scene.
Ramirez-Tapia was taken into custody by the Bandera County Sheriff’s Office the next morning and was booked into the Bandera County Jail.
The Kerr County Sheriff’s Office stated that Ramirez-Tapia faces charges out of Bandera County and has five outstanding Kerr County warrants for Criminal Mischief, Unauthorized use of a Vehicle, Theft of a Firearm, Burglary of a Building, and Evading Arrest.
It was added by Kerr County officials that additional charges are expected to be filed against Ramirez-Tapia due to his alleged confessions to committing other crimes in Kerr County over the past month.
