A high-speed police pursuit in Austintown involved the use of spiked traffic strips, a taser, and a tracking dog before it ended along Meridian Road.

The chase began Monday night after an Austintown Police Officer says a car stolen from Boardman was spotted running a red light at Idaho Road and Mahoning Avenue.

According to the report, the chase proceeded along North Kimberly Avenue, to Norquest Boulevard, Rockwell Road, and Route 46, running through stop signs and red lights along the way.

With speeds ranging between 80 and 90 miles per hour southbound along Route 46, a Sheriff’s cruiser took over the pursuit which turned onto Kirk Road.

It was at Kirk and South Raccoon Roads where the stolen car’s front tires were shredded by spiked stop strips that had been placed there by police.

Police say the car continued speeding eastward until turning north on Meridian Road, where it pulled into a driveway and the occupants got out and ran.

An officer says he got out of his cruiser and chased the driver who the officer claims appeared to have his hand tucked into the waistband of his pants.

Not knowing if the suspect had a gun, the officer says he fired his Taser, which according to the report had no effect.

The officer tackled and arrested the suspect, a 16-year-old boy, who was charged with fleeing and eluding, receiving stolen property, and resisting arrest.

Police brought in a K-9 tracking dog to search for other suspects in the area, but couldn’t locate any of them

However, a seventeen-year-old boy was arrested later in Youngstown after his mother admitted to police that he had called her for a ride from the neighborhood where the chase ended.
