TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Two arrests were made early Tuesday morning after Terre Haute Police officers were led on a pursuit through the northern part of the city and county.
According to a post from the Terre Haute Police Department, uniformed officers attempted to make a traffic stop around 4:00 a.m. at S. 25th and Poplar Streets for several traffic violations including driving a vehicle with no license plate.
The vehicle ignored the officer’s attempts for a traffic stop and the pursuit began. The suspects came to a stop after the Vigo County Sheriff’s Department was able to assist by successfully deploying stop sticks and disabling the suspect’s vehicle at the intersection of N. 13th and Haythorne Street where the suspects then fled on foot.
The post reads, “[T]he passenger was immediately taken into custody. THPD K-9 was deployed to conduct a track but was not needed as the driver was located by an officer holding a perimeter around the area and taken into custody after a foot pursuit.”
No injuries or property damage was reported during the incident.
