WLNS – Dewitt Township Police are investigating after a 22-year-old Lansing man fled the scene of a Meijer after running out with stolen property.

The man jumped inside a vehicle right outside of the front doors. Police intercepted the driver but the passenger in the vehicle fled on foot.

The driver made it to Lansing where Police terminated the search.

The driver was later arrested at a residence in Lansing.

The passenger somehow managed to get control of a City of Dewitt patrol car.

Due to locators in the car, it was followed by neighboring Police. The car chase ended as the car pulled up to a dead end.

That man is currently in custody. He is a 30-year-old Lansing man.
