MOORESVILLE, Ind. — Police in Mooresville are looking for the person who led them on a chase Monday morning following thefts from vehicles near Newby Memorial Elementary School and Monroe Street.
Officer Brock Chipman said the department received at least five reports of someone rummaging through vehicles between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. He added all of the calls they received about theft were reportedly from unlocked cars.
Around 5:30 a.m., those committing the crimes led police on a chase lasting around 15 minutes, ending in the Heartland Crossing area.
Chipman said the driver ditched the car and ran away. Officers found lots of stolen items in the vehicle, which they brought back to the department.
“I saw wallets, prized possessions, work tools, work boots,” Chipman said. “Basically anything in that area where people left their cars unlocked, unfortunately.”
Police are questioning some people, but they ask the public to call them with any additional information. They also want people in the area with home security cameras to check their footage from early Monday morning.
If you have any information which could help police make arrests in this case, call the Mooresville Police Department at 317-831-3434.
