Chopper 11 was over the entire 45-minute chase. The suspect could be seen weaving in and out of traffic, jumping curbs and even driving on the wrong side of traffic — just barely missing other drivers.

After leaving the the pickup truck in a parking garage near Walnut Hill, he got out and started running. He was seen hopping a fence at the Lakeside at Northpark apartments. He appeared to be carrying a black bag and wearing gloves.

Police say the suspect headed into a wooded area near the apartments. They looked for him for two hours before calling off the search.

The suspect has not been caught.

As the investigation continues, police say the next thing they’ll be doing is checking the pickup truck for fingerprints.
