On Tuesday at approximately 1:30 p.m., police said, officers observed a speeding vehicle bearing no licence plate matching the description of a vehicle stolen in mid-September.
“Police followed the vehicle, which entered Glen Elm Trailer Court,” the RPS stated in a release. “Police successfully deployed a spike belt as it exited. The vehicle continued on deflated tires, ultimately stopping in the area of the 1200 block of Bond Street, where the driver fled on foot.”
