A Brownwood man detained a juvenile car burglar Friday afternoon, then chased and caught the teen again when the youth tried to flee as police approached, police said.
    The incident happened shortly after 4 p.m. in the 2600 block of Elizabeth.
    According to a report by officer Jared Spohn:
    Spohn was dispatched to the neighborhood on a report that residents of a home were detaining a male after seeing enter him in their vehicle. Spohn drove up to see a man and woman standing with the juvenile, who ran as Spohn approached.
    Spohn radioed that the youth was evading and began to make the block so he could catch the youth in the alley. But Spohn saw in his patrol vehicle’s rear-view mirror that the youth was unsuccessful at hopping a wooden fence and the male resident had grabbed him by his short collar.
    Spohn entered the front yard, placed the youth on the ground and handcuffed him for transport to the police department.
    Spohn learned the woman had just parked their Dodge Charger in the driveway, and the man saw the juvenile had opened the car’s front door and was rummaging through items.
    The man confronted the youth, who attempted to run but fell down in the driveway. The man detained the youth, and the woman called the police department.
    Police later took the youth to the Juvenile Detention Center, where he was released to staff.

Nolberto Martinez Jr. arrest
    In an unrelated incident, Brownwood police arrested Nolberto Martinez Jr., 27, of Brownwood, on charges of evading arrest, possession of a controlled substance, criminal trespass and violation of a protective order, police said.
    According to a report by police Sgt. Stephanie Morgan:
    Police responded Friday night to the 1700 block of Avenue E for violation of a protective order. Police were told a man with a protective order that prohibits him from being on or near the property had been there.
    Police also learned the man, identified as Martinez, had an active warrant for criminal trespass of a habitation.
    Officers made numerous unsuccessful attempts Friday night to locate Martinez.
    Morgan returned to duty Saturday and learned day shift officers had made numerous tries at finding Martinez, who was reportedly driving an older model Chevrolet pickup.
    Morgan drove to the 1700 block of Avenue E, believing Martinez would show up. An older red pickup drove by the home that is described in the protective order, and the driver gunned the truck.
    Morgan tried to catch up to the truck but lost sight of it due to heavy traffic. Morgan believed Martinez would returned to the area, and Morgan parked her patrol vehicle in an inconspicuous location. The truck returned, and the driver gunned the truck as it passed by the residence “in what appeared to be an obvious attempt to make his presence known and to alarm or annoy” anyone inside, Morgan’s report states.
    Morgan caught up to the truck and tried to stop it, but the driver kept going until he pulled under a carport in the 1000 block of First. Unsure if the driver was armed, Morgan ordered him out of the truck at gunpoint.
    Other officers arrived and found items including a baggie with methamphetamine in the truck.
