Chambers County Sheriffs Department in not one but two chases


This past Saturday, while some 15 year olds where thinking about the best place to scoop up some Halloween sweet treats, at least two kids in Chambers County were instead busy hiding from the Chambers County Sheriffs Deputies. It was Saturday when Sheriff Brian Hawthorne said a joint effort including his Chambers County Sheriff’s Department, Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies, DPS, Texas Game Wardens and the Baytown Police Department resulted in the arrest of 22-year old Dale James Damond after he crashed out. It all began, we are told, with a pursuit from the east in Jefferson County and ended in Hankamer, in Chambers County. Dale James Damond and his two 15-year old passengers, fled their disabled vehicle and ran into the woods between Highway 61 and the Interstate 10 feeder road near Hankamer. All three where quickly captured, but a search of the vehicle resulted in discovery of body armor as well as bullets. Chambers County will file 2 endangerment of a child warrants and Jefferson County will have multiple charges, including evading arrest and failure to ID, all of that against 22 year old Dale James Damond. Then, late Halloween night, Chambers County Sheriff’s Office was again contacted by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, in reference to another pursuit, Beaumont Police officers in pursuit going westbound on Interstate 10 towards Chambers County. That pursuit went through Chambers County, then returned to Jefferson County, at speeds upwards of 100 miles per hour, then eventually headed back into Chambers County on Interstate 10. On multiple occasions, the driver used his vehicle as a weapon when attempting to strike the patrol cars of pursuing officer’s. As the chase approached Winnie along I-10, the suspect exited I-10 at State Highway 124. As the driver neared the intersection of I-10 and FM 1663 another vehicle, pulled in front of the fleeing SUV and both vehicles came to a stop. The fleeing driver exited his vehicle and ran to the other vehicle, jumping into the passenger seat. Pursuing officers thought it was a carjacking. As it turned out, the driver of a Hummer had actually come to assist a suspect in an SUV. A successful deployment of spike strips by the Texas DPS troopers ended the chase on Interstate 10. In all, that pursuit lasted some 45 minutes, with assistance of a Texas DPS Helicopter. Two subjects, Adrian Sinaloa and Luis Sinaloa, ages and relationship is unknown, were both arrested. Luis Sinaloa is charged with evading arrest with motor vehicle, Aggravated Assault against a public servant and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Luis Sinaloa is being held without bond while Adrian Sinaloa is also being charged with evading arrest with a motor vehicle and hindering apprehension. It was a busy Halloween for peace officers from several agencies in Chambers and Jefferson Counties.
