INDIANAPOLIS - Police were hunting for a fourth man after three of his companions were arrested following a car chase and marijuana bust overnight.
Indianapolis police (IMPD) said at roughly 12:30 a.m. Thursday, an officer tried to pull a car over that was traveling along Interstate 70 near the Keystone Exit on the east side of the city.
The car reportedly didn't stop when officers initiated the traffic stop. Instead, the car continued to the near east side, where two men inside bailed.
Police said they set up a perimeter on the near-east side between New York and Michigan streets and brought K-9s in to help. One of the men in the car was caught and arrested, but the second is still loose. Investigators said they do know the second man's identity, however, and will be issuing a warrant for his arrest. (No specific details on perimeter at this time.)
IMPD said a gun was found in this first car during officers' investigation.
At the same time that all of this was happening, IMPD said they re-discovered a second car officers had spotted originally traveling with the first vehicle. They pulled over the car in the area of Michigan and Dorman streets.
Police said they found a "sizable" amount of marijuana in the car and arrested both of those men as well.
That fourth man is still on the loose. We will add information on his identity as soon as investigators release it.
If you have information on this fourth man, you’re urged to report it to police at 317-327-3811. You can also always report information anonymously via Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477 (TIPS) or online at crimetips.org. Tips can also be texted along with "INDYCS" to 274637.
