Overnight chase ends at Dearborn and Gregg Streets
Around 2 a.m. Thursday El Dorado Police officers observed a vehicle suspected in a burglary case earlier in the evening. A white Toyota 4-Runner was westbound on Towanda Ave. from Haverhill Rd. when officers attempted to stop the vehicle. The vehicle left the scene and led the officers on a chase out of El Dorado.
The chase ended approximately 30 minutes later at the corner of Dearborn and Gregg Streets in Augusta after stop sticks were deployed by the Augusta Department of Safety.
The suspect, a 19 year-old white male, fled the scene on foot. He was located later in the morning by officers from the El Dorado Police Department and the Augusta Department of Public Safety.
A spokesman with the El Dorado Police Department stated that the vehicle was stolen out of El Dorado and contained property from several burglaries that occurred overnight in that city.
The names of parties involved are being withheld until the investigation is complete.
