The Allen County Sheriff's Office was involved in a car chase early this morning.

A driver disregarded a stop sign at the intersection of State Route 81 and Thayer Road. Deputies were able to apprehend the subject but are not releasing their name at this time as the matter is still under investigation.

That was actually the second car chase to take place in that area this weekend. Early Saturday morning (3/9/19) the Ohio State Highway Patrol was involved in a chase after a vehicle failed to pull over for a traffic stop near the Waffle House regarding their headlights not being on. The car eventually crashed along Ada Road, where the driver began running away on foot.

Troopers did bring out K9's to sniff the driver out but they could not locate them. However, they say they do know who they are looking for and are working to locate them.

A passenger that was in the fleeing vehicle was transported to Mercy Health-St. Rita's with minor injuries.
