New York State man leads police in chase that ends on airport runway
it’s like something straight out of a movie. CBS reports that one of the craziest police chases in recent memory ensued after a man with three active warrants allegedly robbed a local Macy’s department store on Thursday. Apparently he has quite a history, including skirmishes here in the Hudson Valley.
Shortly after, this brazen suspect led police on a senseless chase that saw him flee in a vehicle he allegedly stole from a Stewart’s parking lot. But it continues to improve.
Police say it all started after the 27-year-old Colonie robbed a jewelry counter at a nearby Macy’s. On leaving the store, he even allegedly threatened an employee with a knife, who allegedly tried to stop him from shoplifting. Officials say the suspect jumped into the stolen sedan and attempted to drive away. When police attempted to arrest him, the suspect did the unthinkable by crashing the stolen vehicle through one of the Albany International Airport fences and rolling down one of the runways.
We don’t know if he suddenly thought he was 007 and hoped to somehow take this sedan into the air? Was he thinking of jumping on one of the flights? CBS says the chase continued after he crashed through another fence on the other side of the airport, before abandoning his ride at the Pepsi Beverage Company. Police say they later found him in another company’s parking lot, so his foot pursuit didn’t take him too far. He was eventually arrested, ending this alleged jewelry theft and attempted escape.
As you might expect, the suspect faces multiple charges.
