Suspect in drug investigation leads police on car chase

A suspect in a drug investigation led police on a car chase Monday night from Baltimore City, into Baltimore County and back into the city, ending in the arrest of the driver.

City police say detectives tried to stop the burgundy sport utility vehicle in the 500 block of Alluvion Street about 9:30 p.m. The driver did not stop and fled into Baltimore County, at which point county police and Maryland State Police also got involved to try to stop the car.

The SUV ultimately came back into the city and police were able to stop the driver on northbound Interstate 83 before the Ruxton Road exit. No officers were injured in the chase.

The driver, a man, was taken into custody, police said.
