According to reports from KLTV, West Monroe police had a minor car chase late Wednesday night before Calvert was involved in a small crash.  He had a hand gun in his lap, but offered no struggle although police did have to smash a car window to retrieve him from the car.  Lucas Calvert was found safe in a car seat riding in the back of the car.

No timetable has been set, but James Calvert will be extradited back to Tyler to face murder and kidnapping charges with a bond of $2 million dollars set.  The law enforcement community wishes to thank all those who helped by way of offering tips and/or prayers.
