On Wednesday, September 28, at approximately 11:42 AM, the Madison Police Department received information of a recently stolen vehicle that was in the area of the City of Madison.
A Madison police officer saw the stolen 2014 Chevrolet pick-up truck and attempted to initiate a traffic stop on Highland Colony Parkway at Lake Castle Road.
The driver of the stolen truck refused to stop and drove south on Highland Colony Parkway into Ridgeland. A chase ensued when the truck didn’t stop.
Other Madison units arrived to help, and officers from Ridgeland Police Department and Madison County Sheriff’s Office. The stolen truck kept driving southbound on Highland Colony Parkway then turned west on Old Agency Road, and turned north onto Richardson Road then east onto Steed Road.
