Indianapolis—Four young men, two adults and two juveniles, were apprehended after a chase that ended in the rain and the mud of an eastside subdivision Sunday.
A few hours earlier, two cars were stolen from a home in Lawrence. One of those vehicles, a white Cadillac, was equipped with an ON Star locator which was activated and led police to the 1400 block of Fenwick Avenue.
"There was a short pursuit around the neighborhood, and the car crashed into a yard," said IMPD Sgt. Steve Staletovich. "We had a very tight perimeter and there was no way they were going to get out."
The stolen car came to rest in a side yard as two police cars stopped on the front lawns of neighboring homes. K-9 units responded and helped subdue the suspects, one of whom received a leg wound. The alleged driver ran several blocks away and was discovered after breaking into a home in the 8200 block of Cecil Court.
"These are burglars, so, these are guys who will break into your house and steal from you," said Staletovich. "They are pretty dangerous people."
One of the suspected thieves, who gave his name as Walt, told Fox 59 that the chase was "fun as hell." He said everybody in the car was trying to convince the driver to pull over and surrender to police. "But its cool. Not everybody's as smart as the next man," said Walt.
Two of the suspects are identified as Walter Johnson and Bobby Hill.
Detectives are tying to determine whether the suspects have been involved in any other eastside break-ins.
