SPOKANE, Wash.- Spokane Police Officers spent a good part of early Tuesday morning looking for the suspect in a stolen vehicle incident that involved a short police pursuit and a vehicle crash.

It started around 4:00 Tuesday morning at Regal and 53rd Avenue in Spokane's South Hill. An officer driving by an apartment complex there noticed a car being driven recklessly. When the officer tried to pull over the driver, that driver took off.  

The officer began a pursuit of the suspect, who crashed the vehicle at 58th and Lee, just several blocks north and west. The suspect jumped from the vehicle and fled on foot. Officers set up a perimeter to find the suspect and brought in K-9 tracking units. Ultimately they were unable to find the suspect.  

That suspect did leave behind a bag of shaved keys that officers believe the suspect used to steal a number of vehicles. The suspect also left behind a trail of damage from the vehicle crash. The suspect hit two vehicles before abandoning the car. KHQ talked with the owner of one of the vehicles who said it's upsetting and it appears the car can't be driven. That person also says a car was stolen from just up the street a few days before and now he's worried about parking outside on the street.
