FORT MILL, S.C. — The Fort Mill Police Department have arrested three suspects including a juvenile who were attempting to enter a vehicle, officials say.
Officers responded to a call from Friday around 5:15 a.m. after a nearby resident of the Mason’s Bend subdivision observed the incident.
According to a news release, after arriving at the scene an officer talked to the nearby resident that say the suspects run away and within minutes a nearby vehicle was observed leaving the area.
Officers then attempted a traffic stop on that vehicle but the vehicle accelerated and proceeded toward the entrance of the subdivision.
As the vehicle approached Sutton Road, an officer who was standing by in that area deployed a spike strip. The vehicle ran over the device and then turned on to Sutton Road, police say.
The pursuit continued as the vehicle exited on to I-77. The chase ended shortly after before reaching Exit 82 as the tires completely deflated.
When the car came to a stop two suspects exited and jumped over the median barrier and fled across the northbound lanes.
After a short foot chase, FMPD officers captured one of the suspects, and the York County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit was requested to assist with locating the other, a release said.
