Like a game of telephone, you probably heard the story about the Uhaul that came barreling into town from Burnet last Friday. Lampasas Police Department assisted Texas HWY Patrolmen in the pursuit. Here’s the story from LPD’s call card for that day:
At 12:30PM, December 15th, State Troopers chased a Uhaul pulling a small trailer into Lampasas from Burnet Co. The Uhaul, travelling N on 183/Key Ave, took a right onto FM 580 E on the other side of town, a right onto Hackberry St, headed S, and then turned East onto 3rd street, travelling a couple blocks before going off the road and coming to a stop. The male driver then bailed out of the vehicle and headed W on 3rd towards the Square. Troopers followed suit and caught the man in a vacant lot next to McGregor Glass, near Hackberry and 3rd. LPD assisted in getting him into custody, but he did not book him here in Lampasas Co.
