Stolen car involved in Atlanta police chase

ATLANTA -- A stolen car was recovered after it was involved in a police chase in southeast Atlanta Thursday morning.

The car was taken Wednesday evening. Atlanta Police Capt. Scott Kreher said a suspect dragged the car's owner from the vehicle and then drove it away.

A few hours later, the car became involved in a chase with a Georgia State Patrol trooper's vehicle.

Kreher said the chase began in southwest Atlanta, crossed the Downtown Connector and ultimately ended shortly before 2 a.m. near the intersection of Moreland and Ormewood avenues in East Atlanta, when police executed a PIT maneuver.

The suspect inside the stolen car was taken into custody. Kreher said police are working to determine if he was the one who stole the car.

No one was injured in the police chase.
