Chase at more than 100 mph leads to 350 pounds of marijuana

ORANGE COUNTY - from Orange County Sheriff's Office

On Wednesday, May 28, 2014, around 12:30 p.m., Orange County Sheriffs Office Deputies were eastbound on IH-10 near Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. in Orange, Orange County, Texas, when they observed a black passenger van also traveling eastbound. 

KFDM's Leslie Rangel is investigating. Watch KFDM News at 6 for Leslie Rangel's report.

The driver of the van failed to signal a lane change and abruptly exited the Interstate near Adams Bayou.  The Deputies activated the emergency lighting and siren behind the van, but the driver accelerated and reached a speed around 90 mph while on the eastbound service road. 

The van proceeded onto N. 16th St. and then turned westbound on the IH-10 service road.  The driver of the van continued without stopping and entered IH-10 westbound traveling at speeds near 115 mph. 

As the van approached the area of IH-10 at the Womack overpass, other Deputies were arriving in the area ahead of the van.  As the suspect driver observed the Deputies ahead, he pulled the van over at the IH-10 and Hwy 62 exit.

The driver was the lone occupant in the vehicle and was taken into custody for Evading Arrest.  Once the suspect was detained, approximately 350 pounds of marijuana was found in the back of the passenger van.  It was wrapped in black garbage bags, several layers of plastic wrap, packaging tape, and aluminum foil. 

The suspect was later identified as 30 year old white male Luis Cendejas of Fort Pierce, Florida.  Cendejas was taken to the Orange County Jail where he was booked for Evading Arrest, a State Jail Felony, and Possession of Marijuana, a 2nd Degree Felony.  Cendejas remains in custody awaiting arraignment.
