One of the suspects jumped out of the moving vehicle, but the officers pursued him on foot and arrested him.

The vehicle got away, but the arrested man had two bags containing various car break-in tools.

“The suspect will face charges relating to possession of car break-in implements and will soon appear in court,” Miller said.
