HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) — Four people were taken into custody after leading Huber Heights Police on a short chase.

Officers were dispatched to the area St. Peter Church on Chambersburg Saturday morning on reports of a suspicious vehicle.

Police said when they arrived, the suspects saw the officer, put the car in drive, and collided with the cruiser. A pursuit then ensued from Chambersburg Road through the Fricker’s lot and onto Brandt Pike. The chase ended on Brandt in the area of Rye Drive where the suspect lost control of his car, spun out several times, and hit a curb blowing out the tires.

Four of the five suspects got out of the moving car and ran from the scene into nearby yards. Police said an officer used his cruiser to pull into the path of the vehicle to stop it from rolling, which caused the cruiser to be struck a second time.

Police said with the help of residents, they were able to catch up with the suspects and took four of them into custody.

Two of the suspects were booked into the Montgomery County Jail and formal charges are pending. A juvenile suspect was taken to the Juvenile Detention Center for obstructing official business. One juvenile was released. Police are still looking for another suspect on the loose.

Officers said they recovered gloves, hammers, bags, and a large rock from the vehicle — all tools they say are used for burglaries.

The investigation is ongoing.
