Burglars targeting Rudy's Country Store & Bar-B-Q in the area are behind bars after breaking into the Webster location early this morning. According to KPRC, three men were caught on surveillance camera using a sledgehammer to break in, but fled the scene shortly after the alarm sounded, with police tailing them down Interstate 45 North. Despite placing spike strips on the freeway, the alleged crooks evaded Houston police until reaching 610 and Clinton Drive. All but one weren't caught immediately.
