HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — A 25-year-old man was arrested and is facing charges after authorities said he broke into several vehicles and then crashed into two other vehicles while a Good Samaritan followed him. Convicted felon Dominique Theragood is accused of doing all of this with his four small children in the car with him.

While the citizen was following, Theragood crashed into two parked vehicles, authorities said.
When deputies arrived, they pulled Theragood’s vehicle over and detained him. When they searched the vehicle, deputies said they found stolen property, a gun and Theragood’s four small children, who were unrestrained.
The stolen property was returned to the rightful owners.
Theragood was charged with burglary of a motor vehicle, child endangerment and felon in possession of a firearm.
Child Protective Services was advised of the facts in the case, according to authorities. It’s unclear what happened to Theragood’s children.
