Just after 12PM, officers were dispatched to Costco after receiving a report of several individuals that had loaded up thousands of dollars of generators in shopping carts and were walking between fire exits looking for an exit to flee out of.
The suspects exited without taking any merchandise and got into a vehicle that was recently reported as stolen. When an officer attempted to perform a traffic stop, the vehicle immediately fled and struck a retaining wall nearby on S 180th St then came to a stop in the middle of the street.
The driver who is a juvenile male that was recently reported as missing fled on foot and was pursued by officers who took him into custody.
S 180th will be closed at Andover Park E for the collision investigation.
