By Pat Lafleur, Ft Thomas Matters City Beat
At approximately 11 PM last night, Southgate Police engaged in high-speed pursuit of a suspect fleeing from Southgate, up Highland Ave. and into the northern end of Ft. Thomas.
Ft. Thomas Police Department Lt. Richard Whitford reports that the suspect slammed into a parked car on Dixie Place across N. Ft. Thomas Ave. from Johnson Elementary. From Dixie Pl., the suspect abandoned his vehicle and fled on foot. He was apprehended by law enforcement on Mayo Avenue shortly thereafter.
Lt. Whitford reports the suspect is currently in Southgate PD custody. "We engaged because the chase entered Ft. Thomas city limits and to support the SGPD, but we do not have any other details on the suspect," said Lt. Whitford. "We do know he had several warrants out for his arrest."
FTM is currently seeking a statement from SGPD with more information on the suspect.
