Three people were taken into custody Saturday following a chase that went into Parker County, officials say.

The Dallas County Sheriff's Department notified Erath County authorities that they had tracked three men wanted in an aggravated robbery to the county, according to the Parker County Sheriff's Office.

Erath and Parker county deputies pursued the reportedly stolen vehicle, which hit another vehicle and crashed on eastbound Interstate 20 at the exit to FM1189 and Brock Junction.

The three men fled on foot, and were apprehended shortly after noon after residents reported seeing three men walking on Olive Branch Road, the sheriff's office said.

The men were identified as Kert Jerome Parker Jr.,19, of Mesquite; Antquins DeWayen Johnson, 18, of Mesquite; and Takirus Davon Jones, 19, of Duncanville.

Parker and Johnson face charges of evading arrest and detention. Jones faces a charge of aggravated assault and unlawful carrying of a weapon. Bail has not been set.

Parker County Sheriff Russ Authier said he expects other agencies to file additional charges.

The Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Rangers, Weatherford and Hudson Oaks police, Texas Parks and Wildlife game wardens, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives assisted in the search.

The sheriff's office initially said Dallas police were involved in the pursuit. The Dallas Police Department said it was not familiar with the chase.
