E. Charlotte Police Chase Damages Several Vehicles

CHARLOTTE, NC– A five mile police chase in East Charlotte ends with several damaged cars and a missing robbery suspect.

Tonight, CMPD is working to track down and identify that suspect.

Police tried to pull over a stolen SUV near Sam Drenan road this afternoon, but the driver sped off.

During the chase, police say the suspect hit several other vehicles.

The pursuit ended at Hunting Ridge and Idlewild Roads when the driver got out and ran.

” I wasn’t sure… I knew I saw a car I didn’t know and the cops were pulling up. So I started asking some questions, as to whether I needed to lock down or not.” said East Charlotte resident Sylvia Ard

Officers believe the suspect’s vehicle was stolen and involved in a robbery on Thursday.

CMPD hasn’t said where that robbery occurred.
