INDIANAPOLIS — A man and a woman were arrested after stealing a trailer and leading police on a high-speed chase late Sunday night and into Monday morning.
Maj. Kerry Buckner with Indianapolis Metro Police said the chase started at around 9:00 p.m. Sunday after a man had picked a woman up at a Rally’s along Holt Road on the east side. Officers nearby noticed that the trailer had been reported stolen so they started chasing the pair.
“They fled southbound on Holt Road,” Buckner said. “They then got on I-70 going eastbound in the westbound lanes. At the point, our officers terminated the pursuit.”
Buckner said the chase had gotten too dangerous when they started down the wrong way on the interstate. But, the perps were headed towards downtown so Buckner said the officers notified officers in the downtown district that the truck and trailer may be heading their way.
The truck is said to have hit three cars on the interstate heading towards downtown.
That’s when police regain contact with the suspects as they exited onto West Street downtown. It was at the intersection of Meridian and Pennsylvania Streets that the chase came to an end.
“It was going at a high rate a speed pulling that travel trailer behind it and it hit two vehicles,” Buckner added. “After it struck the vehicles it entrapped two people in those vehicles. The driver fled and was apprehended. The female fled and was apprehended by the Marion County Sheriff’s Department.”
Buckner said the truck that was pulling the trailer has been linked to other stolen trailers in the Indy area. The names of the man and the woman involved have not been released.
