December 19, 2016 |

A man who allegedly led police on a pursuit in a stolen vehicle alluded apprehension after crashing the vehicle in Elk Grove. 

On the evening of Saturday, December 16, Elk Grove Police located an occupied vehicle on near Grant Line and Survey roads that had reportedly been involved in a vehicle burglary in Galt and possibly Elk Grove. When officers attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver did not stop and led police on a one mile pursuit.

Due to the erratic driving of the unknown suspect and the public safety hazard it presented, police officers decided to terminate the pursuit.  Sometime later the same stolen vehicle was involved in a collision near Calvine and Bradshaw roads.

Following the collision the driver fled the vehicle on foot and police established a perimeter. After conducting an extensive search that included Sacramento County Sheriff's helicopter, the suspect was not located.

No physical description of the suspect has been released at this time.
