The officer was able to catch the first four digits of the licence plate and recognized those numbers as being the digits from the stolen Tahoe. The officer conducted a U-turn and proceeded to follow the vehicle and was then able to confirm that the plates matched the reported stolen vehicle. The stolen vehicle travelled outside the city limit and accelerated away. In the interest of public safety a pursuit was not engaged. The officer maintained a safe distance behind the vehicle. The stolen vehicle was then observed conducting a u-turn and begin to travel back towards the city passing the cruiser. The officer alerted fellow officers of the change of direction of the stolen vehicle and another officer was able to strategically set up a tire deflection device. At least one of the Tahoe?s tires struck the spike belt in the area of Newport Road. The vehicle continued to travel and failed to stop.

The resident did not know how long the vehicle had been on her property for. The vehicle had damage to the steering column, door luck was punched and one of the tires was flat and the rim was damaged.  The vehicle was recovered and towed by the BPS where a forensic examination was conducted.
