Police Arrest Two For Leading Chase In Stolen Truck

Posted: Updated:

Two men are in jail after a police chase.

It started by car and ended on foot.

One man made a successful getaway, at least for a short time.

Police say it was a quick chase and no one was hurt in the process.

It started near Cemetery and Lears roads in Petoskey when a sergeant noticed a truck going in reverse in traffic.
 
The driver was arrested when he tried to drive down a seasonal road, and got stuck in the snow. The 20-year-old from Mackinac Island was driving on a suspended license and was also found with illegal drugs.
 
The passenger from Petoskey was searched for on-foot, and was eventually arrested for violating parole.
 
Troopers say the driver is going to be charged with numerous felonies, to include possession of a stolen vehicle, narcotics charges, and fleeing and eluding.
9&10's Alyssa Gambla spent the day digging for details on the case.
