Police are still searching for a man they say shoplifted, stole a car, crashed it and ran from the scene after leading police on a chase around the town Thursday afternoon.
While the man escaped on foot, two women in the car were arrested and charged with crimes, Police Captain Joe Binns said. The driver was stopped by officers on Garner Road before taking off.
The shoplifting incident happened at Target in the 2700 block of Timber Drive. None of the suspect’s names were released.
Police are still investigating the incident. The two women were not shown on police reports, and a spokesperson for the department did not have their names on hand before this paper’s deadline.
