An overnight burglary in Indianapolis causes a chase and a crash



Indianapolis, Indiana – One crime scene led to another early on Tuesday morning in the west and southwest parts of Indianapolis.

As per the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, the initial report of a break-in occurred in the 2900 block of Kentucky Avenue close to Tibbs Avenue at approximately 3:30 a.m. That is at a strip mall with a dollar store, a bar, and other establishments.

Police said that they attempted to pull over a small, dark-colored automobile they saw driving about after the burglary, which started a chase.

About three miles north of the burglary site, in the 3000 block of West McCarty Street, a little community approximately north of Interstate 70 and east of Eagle Creek, the suspect’s automobile crashed shortly after four in the morning.

Up until an update around four hours after the original break-in, police had little to say about what had happened. According to investigators, the suspect’s vehicle made a tiny turn too soon, swerving off the road and slamming into a tree. When the car crashed, two juveniles and one adult were inside.

Following the collision, the adult and one of the young suspects—who happened to be the driver—left the scene, leaving the second young suspect behind.

The second adolescent was found by police inside the vehicle, and they took him to a nearby hospital where his condition was critically ill. By six in the morning, the officers had mostly left the site.

After leaving the scene, both suspects were eventually caught with the help of police dogs and a drone.

Investigators with the IMPD are quite familiar with the vicinity of the first burglary. Outside the Big Dog Saloon, a guy was shot a little over a month ago. Two males were shot outside the same bar the previous year.
