Stolen truck leads police on car chase
Colorado Springs Police chased a truck early Monday morning that was discovered to be stolen from Pueblo.
An officer was patrolling in the area of Wahsatch Ave. and Kiowa St. and tried to pull over a suspicious truck for a traffic violation. A short car chase started after the truck didn't pull over.
Police ran the license plate on the truck and found out it was stolen.
When the car chase reached the intersection of Fountain Blvd. and Hancock Expy., the passenger in the truck jumped out while the truck continued to drive away from police. The chase stopped shortly after.
The passenger was detained, then released without charges.
Shortly after, another officer saw the suspect truck in the area of Alexander Rd. and Monument St. When the officer lost sight of the truck, the suspect parked the truck and ran away. Police searched the area, but did not find the suspect.
