A police chase from from Pharr to Granjeno, just south of McAllen, ended with a stolen truck in the Rio Grande river and the suspects in Mexico.
It all happened after Pharr police received a call from the Weslaco police department about a Dodge Ram truck stolen out of their city. When a Pharr police officer spotted the truck on Wednesday morning and attempted to pull the driver over, but he refused and that began the chase.
The pursuit ended under the Anzalduas bridge in Granjeno and officials say the driver drove the truck int the river and the two men swam into Mexico.
