GREENWOOD, Ind. - A man was arrested Wednesday after leading police on a high-speed chase in a truck that had been stolen from the parking lot of a store.
Terry Dye Jr., 19, was arrested on charges of auto theft, resisting law enforcement, driving with a suspended license and criminal mischief.
The Johnson County Sheriff's Office said officers were called to the Gander Mountain parking lot, near County Line Road and Interstate 65, just after 6:30 p.m. on a report of a stolen truck.
The truck, a Chevrolet Silverado, was last seen southbound on I-65 from the County Line Road exit.
An officer saw the truck on Whiteland Road, turning onto northbound I-65, and attempted to pull the driver over at the Main Street exit.
Police said the driver did not pull over and accelerated, starting a chase.
The driver pulled off the interstate onto East Main Street in Greenwood, blowing through red lights and stop signs, police said.
The driver pulled off the road at County Road 325 East and drove through a farm field, but couldn't shake pursuing officers.
The driver cut through several other rural roads before driving through another farm field in the 1700 block of South Graham Road.
Police said Dye jumped out of the truck in the 1600 block of Collins Road before surrendering.
Dye admitted stealing the truck from the Gander Mountain lot, police said. He was also wanted on a warrant in Marion County.
Police have been in touch with the owners of the farm fields where crops were damaged in the chase.
Dye was being held Thursday in the Johnson County Jail.
