Car chase results in 4 arrests

CHICKASHA —

An early morning car chase resulted in four arrests on Oct. 26 in Chickasha. 

"I was near the intersection of 20th Street and Arizona Avenue. l observed a white Ford Expedition pull out onto 20th Street from Ridgecrest Avenue. The Ford Expedition then turned onto  Arizona Avenue and I pulled in behind it. After l pulled in behind the car l saw it swerve to the right off of the  street and then back to the left. I turned on my emergency lights to initiate a traffic stop. The vehicle stopped at 19th Street and Arizona Avenue. After a few moments the car accelerated and began driving away very  quickly. l called out pursuit on the vehicle and turned on my siren," Chickasha Police Officer Cliff Walker wrote in an incident report. 

During the chase, the vehicle slowed in the 1700 block of 18th Street. Later, a crown royal bag containing a gun with the serial number filed off was recovered from the area. Several small plastic baggies and a digital scale were also recovered from the same location. 

The Expedition continued to run stop signs finally coming to an ally with a gate near 16th Street and Grand Avenue. 

"The Expedition crashed through the gate, forcing it open and breaking the lock. We continued in the alley until we approached Alabama Avenue. As we got closer to Alabama Avenue there was large overgrowth of vegetation and also the alley makes a slight curve back to the west," Walker said. "I observed the vehicle 

go through the vegetation and I saw a subject come out of the passenger's side of the Expedition and run east."

Walker said the way the Expedition was drifting made him believe no one was operating the vehicle, so he believed it was the driver who fled the car. The vehicle coasted until it hit a pole.
