The man driving the SUV was arrested and is believed to have been involved in a recent burglary at a Midland City coin operated laundry. Officers say he was spotted inside the business again Tuesday and law enforcement was notified. That triggered the pursuit during which nobody was hurt and the patrol car only slightly damaged.
The SUV had a license plate that apparently should be displayed on car registered in Coffee County. An initial check did not show the vehicle was stolen though additional information is being conducted.
Houston County deputies and Dothan police officers assisted in the chase and subsequent apprehension of the man. Though a name was given at the scene we will not release it because it is a common name and, until we have additional information, we don’t want to cause confusion.
