“The vehicle matched the description of a vehicle, which had been reported stolen on September 29, 2022,” the RPS stated in a release. “Officers tried to get closer to confirm the license plate, but the vehicle sped away, disobeying a stop sign and exceeding the speed limit.”

The RPS said the officers pulled over and radioed the position of the fleeing vehicle. Another police unit spotted the same car stopped in an alley and observed the driver fleeing on foot.
