Krutka said the patrolling officer spotted an Infiniti G37 sedan reported stolen out of the Plainfield, Connecticut, at about 1:15 a.m., that was parked in an area on South Longyard neighborhood and near a home with one of its garage doors open.

As the officers drove up, four individuals, later learned to be youths between 14 and 16 years of age, jumped into the sedan and took off, Krutka said.

The officers attempted to stop the sedan, but the driver continued to flee, he said.

At that point, Krutka said the officers radioed ahead and had another officer set up spike strips on South Longyard Road just north of the Connecticut line.

The sedan ran over the spike strip, which slowly deflated the tires on the driver’s side, he said.

However, the sedan continued to flee south, crossing the state line on Warnertown Road until it stopped in the area of North Stone Street, according to a press release from Suffield Police.

Brian Battick, 21, is set for a Jan. 11 preliminary hearing in Evanston Circuit Court, where he can argue that authorities didn’t have probable cause to arrest him when they chased him into Wyoming from Utah on Interstate 80 earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Battick’s co-defendant Vernon Laws, who is 20 this year, waived his preliminary hearing Friday and is being prosecuted in the felony-level Uinta County District Court.

Two Spike Strips And A Run

Coudriet sat in the median with his rear-facing radar activated. By 10:38 p.m., a red Dodge Charger hurtled past at 87 mph, according to Coudriet’s evidentiary affidavit filed in the case.

To clamp down on crime, Brentwood changes policy on police chases Missouri

https://www.kmov.com/2023/10/16/brentwood-expected-change-police-pursuit-policy/

BRENTWOOD, Mo.| (KMOV) – Brentwood city leaders voted Monday to change the city’s police tactical pursuit policy, giving officers more leeway to chase suspects of violent crime.

Police will now have the ability to use spike strips on carjacking suspects, as well as those that flee from police.

The sentiment of Brentwood residents First Alert 4 found was clear: police should chase suspects of crime so they don’t keep committing those same crimes.

“I don’t care if it’s a carjacking, a robbery or a shooting. The more you let them get away with it, the more they do,” said Laurel Ziehl.

“If they want to pursue more aggressively, I don’t have a problem with it,” said Rick Nolls.

San Angelo – One man is in custody after a vehicle pursuit Saturday evening in the Southeast side of San Angelo. Forty-year-old Samuel Sutton was taken into custody and is facing multiple felony charges in connection to this incident.

An SAPD patrol officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a Dodge Ram pickup after the pickup nearly collided with the officer’s patrol unit near the intersection of State Street and Paint Rock Road. The driver of the pickup failed to stop and led officers on an almost 10-minute vehicle pursuit in the Southeast part of town.

An officer with the SAPD’s Anti-Crime Unit was able to position himself in front of the pursuit and successfully deploy “Stop Sticks” in front of the suspect vehicle. The suspect vehicle drove over the “Stop Sticks” and this resulted in the deflation of the vehicle’s front left tire.

Due to the successful “Stop Stick” deployment, the pursuit safely ended near the intersection of Preusser and Emerick Street. As we reported Sunday, Sutton was taken into custody and was charged with the below offenses:

Watch: High-Speed Chase Ends in Arrest of Three Teens for Armed Carjacking – Florida

by Jeff Joneshttps://www.shorenewsnetwork.com/2023/10/15/watch-high-speed-chase-ends-in-arrest-of-three-teens-for-armed-carjacking/

Volusia County, FL — A high-speed police chase that originated in Orange County ended in Volusia County with the arrest of three 17-year-olds. The trio had stolen a vehicle from a 59-year-old woman in an armed carjacking incident, prompting a BOLO (Be On the Lookout) alert from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

“Law enforcement technology confirmed the stolen vehicle was in Deltona,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Office stated. Acting on this information, Volusia County deputies set up a position at Epic Theaters, anticipating that the vehicle might try to flee. True to prediction, the car sped off and led authorities on a chase that reached speeds of approximately 113 mph on I-4 eastbound toward Daytona Beach.

In a joint effort involving multiple agencies, the Daytona Beach Police Department successfully deployed a stop stick on Beville Road. Subsequently, Volusia County Deputy Ingram initiated a Precision Immobilization Technique (PIT) maneuver that effectively disabled the fleeing vehicle. “An earlier stop stick hit in Deltona, it turned out, was ineffective,” according to the source.

Officers used stop sticks to end the chase and say that they found two firearms including one that was stolen

Police in North Carolina nabbed a quartet of teens who initiated a high-speed chase in a stolen car and got caught. According to the suspects, they ran from authorities so that they could post about it on TikTok. Officers used stop sticks to end the chase and then found two guns including a stolen one.

All four juveniles ended up in custody after a nine-minute police chase in Monroe, NC. Initially, officers tried to pull the car over on Concord Highway but the driver decided to run. Over the course of the chase, the kids ended up at speeds of 115 mph (185 km/h), police say.

When they didn’t pull over, police put out a spike strip and disabled the vehicle. That vehicle just happened to be a Hyundai. Authorities didn’t say if it was one of the ones involved in the now infamous TikTok Boys Kia/Hyundai theft phenomenon. Regardless of how the teens obtained the vehicle, it clearly wasn’t theirs to begin with.
