A hearing had not been scheduled in the 196th District Court concerning the writ as of Tuesday evening.

Meeks said personnel from all of the agencies involved joined with the Plano Police Department in a set up on the stolen pickup.

Wolford reportedly got into the truck and proceeded south on State Highway 34 toward Terrell, before fleeing an attempted traffic stop. The chase ended just inside the Kaufman County line with no injuries.

Wolford, 49, of Quinlan, has been charged with one count each of unauthorized use of a vehicle and evading arrest from Hunt County, one count of unauthorized use of a vehicle from Collin County and one count of unauthorized use of a vehicle by the Plano Police Department.
