A routine traffic stop turned into a 15 minute pursuit through the capital city.
Right before midnight officers tried to stop a Chevy Impala in the 500 block of Southeast Branner. When the officer exited his patrol car the vehicle took off.
Near Southeast 6th and Deer Creek a tire deflation device punctured at least one of the Impala’s tires.
Officers ended the chase near 6th and Yorkshire due to increased risk to the public.
The vehicle was later located in the 300 block of Southwest Wanamaker.
The driver and passenger were later found in the 61 hundred block of Southwest 4th.
Both occupants were male juveniles…the driver was taken in for a outstanding warrant, along with other charges.
