were walking from vehicle to vehicle attempting to open car doors. The officer located several Hispanic males inside a 1998 maroon Ford F150 pickup. While the officer was attempting to talk to them, one of the suspects jumped out of the truck and ran into some woods located near the scene. After the initial officer gave chase to the fleeing suspect, and prior to other officers arriving on scene, the other occupants of the vehicle fled the scene.
