A witness reported subjects may be stealing from the business as there was a vehicle parked on the property. When the vehicle left, it almost hit the caller’s car and the caller reported the incident as they continued to follow the vehicle.

A sergeant responded to the area where the subject was last seen, noted the report. As the sergeant was nearing an intersection, the suspect vehicle was approaching him. The report states he slowed, still utilizing his siren and lights, when the suspect vehicle continued driving toward the patrol vehicle.
