Video: High-speed chase of Fort Worth mail thieves

FORT WORTH — Dramatic dash camera video from Fort Worth police shows a high-speed, pedal-to-the-metal chase that ended up with two North Texans in federal custody.

Windell Briggs and DeShea Thornton were arrested in January, according to a federal criminal complaint.

But only this week did Fort Worth police release video from a 20 mile long pursuit that shows Briggs and Thornton dangerously weaving in and out of traffic while blowing through red lights.

The complaint details how the two suspects were observed using a “fishing device” to illegally steal mail from a post office site in north Fort Worth. Postal inspectors had the location under observation as part of a sting.
