High speed chase through Howe ends in five arrests

The Howe Police Department overheard radio traffic from Van Alstyne that the McKinney Police Department was in pursuit of a newer model green Chevrolet truck coming north on Texas State Highway 5.  Officers say speeds of the pursuit were around 120 mph. The reason for the stop was for a possible DWI.  Howe Police Lieutenant Michael Hill was able to get into position and set spike strips on Hwy 5 near Ponderosa Road.  The spike effort was a successful deployment as they took out the left front tire of the speeding vehicle. The vehicle continued onto the highway followed by McKinney Police Department units as well as Grayson County Sheriff units. The vehicle came to rest on U.S Highway 75 north just before the Red River bridge.  Five individuals were taken into custody from the vehicle.   As of now, it is unknown what charges McKinney PD will be filing on these individuals.
