November 14th, 2016 at 8:44 AM

On 11-13-16, at approximately 10:04 PM hours, the Flagstaff Police Department responded to a report that Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Public Safety was pursuing a suspect driving in a stolen vehicle from Yavapai County into Flagstaff on Interstate 40. Troopers from the Department of Public Safety had previously attempted to stop the vehicle by using stop sticks to flatten the vehicle’s tires. The attempt was successful but the suspect continued to drive on the flattened tires into Flagstaff. The stolen vehicle was reported to have contained two firearms inside the vehicle when it was stolen.

The suspect stopped the vehicle on Interstate 40 near Lonetree Blvd. and was last seen fleeing northbound on the west side of Lonetree Blvd. near the Ceramics building on Northern Arizona University. The suspect was described as a white male wearing a grey tank top t-shirt, black shorts, and boots. It is believed the suspect stole the firearms from the vehicle because they were not located inside the vehicle as described when searched by Law Enforcement.

Police searched the area for an several hours but were unable to locate the suspect. Residents were asked to lock their doors and remain vigilant for any suspicious activity. At this time there are no further leads in reference to the location of the suspect and no credible reason to believe he is still in the area.

Please call the Flagstaff Police Department at (928)774-1414 or silent witness at (928)774-6111 if you have any information in reference to this case.
