Police catch reported car thieves after chase


State police captured two suspects after chasing their allegedly stolen vehicle on the north side of Indianapolis late Wednesday.

A state trooper began pursuing the Dodge Charger after being passed by the car doing 90 miles per hour. The trooper pulled the car over, but as the driver fumbled for the car's documents, he sped off.

The car hit a ditch near 77th and Sherman on the north side. The male driver and a female passenger fled the vehicle, but were caught by IMPD K-9 officers a short time later.

The vehicle had a temporary Indiana license plate, but was reported stolen out of Florida.
