  • Possession of Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 >=400g ($50,000 bond)
  • Fraudulent Use/Possession of Identifying Information of the Elderly <5 Items ($50,000 bond)

The incident began at approximately 3:22 a.m. when police were notified of a vehicle burglary in the 2200 block of Morales Dr. The victim, alerted by his truck’s alarm, checked security footage and saw a white male in a black hoodie enter and exit his truck. The victim spotted the suspect, later identified as Brayden Foerster, being picked up by a white Infiniti sedan at Pedregal Rd and Ninos Dr.

Officers located the Infiniti at around 3:28 a.m. and initiated a traffic stop. The driver, Ashton West, led officers on a brief chase before stopping on Yavapai St. Foerster fled on foot, and while West was apprehended, officers were unable to locate Foerster and called off the search at 4:47 a.m.

The Infiniti’s registration led officers to a family member of Foerster, providing information on a potential location in Kemah. At 9:47 a.m., detectives from the LCPD Community Impact Unit tracked and apprehended Foerster in Kemah without incident, finding a handgun in his possession.

Both suspects are now in custody, facing numerous charges.
