Officers located the victim detaining a female, but the male driver had just fled into a nearby residential neighborhood.

According to the victim, he reported his vehicle stolen on December 1st. He had just observed his vehicle driving around and began chasing the car. They eventually collided at the above location where the victim confronted the male and female occupants of the car.

The male occupant fled on foot. When the victim started to chase him, the suspect fired several rounds into the air with a handgun.

Area residents began advising that a similar suspect was running yard to yard and through several neighborhoods. After an extensive pursuit, the man was eventually arrested and found to be in possession of a firearm and other narcotic-related items.

Inside the stolen vehicle, officers found property that had been taken from another unreported burglary that had occurred earlier in the day. The property was positively identified by the victim and returned.
