Two occupants of a stolen car escaped after driving the car through a chain link fence at the Sullivan Avenue Apartments about 1:15 a.m. Sunday, Westminster police said.
Pfc. Scott Mitchell observed the 1986 red Camaro at Monroe Street and Winter's Alley and followed the vehicle while verifying that it had been stolen from the 100 block of Pennsylvania Ave. last Tuesday.

Both men made their escape on foot.
