Goodwill break-in leads to pursuit that ends in Peoria: MCSO
PEORIA, Ariz. - Two suspects who allegedly broke into a Goodwill store fled from authorities and led them on a pursuit that ended in Peoria.
According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, deputies received a call just after midnight on Feb. 28 of a break-in at a Goodwill store near Dysart and Camelback Roads, involving two suspects in a truck who wrapped a chain around the doors and broke them open.
When deputies got to the store, they noticed a truck that was parked next to the Goodwill. When deputies approached the truck, it fled the scene, leading authorities on a pursuit.
The truck continued along the Loop 303 where deputies deployed spike strips, which deflated two tires. The truck continued on the freeway before exiting at Bell Road. The truck then re-entered the freeway in the wrong direction.
Arizona Department of Public Safety troopers joined the pursuit and were able to stop the truck by performing a PIT maneuver at Happy Valley Road.
The suspects in the truck, a man and a woman, were taken into custody. FOX 10 cameras at the scene showed the truck on the side of the road, lying on its side.
"The suspects displayed signs of being under the influence and were transported to a local hospital as precaution," MCSO said.
The suspects have not been identified.
