Charlestown Police: Suspect on the loose after multi-county chase

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Four people are facing charges after a multi-county chase Friday morning.

Louisville police said officers responded to a reported car-jacking near Oldshire Road at around 4:30 a.m. before getting a second report of a car-jacking near Carmelwood Drive.

Officers said the two stolen vehicles driving near Preston Highway and Cooper Chapel refused to stop when they tried to pull them over. LMPD said one vehicle crashed and officers were able to arrest the two suspects inside.

The second car continued onto Preston Highway, leading officers out of Jefferson County and into Charlestown, Indiana. Indiana State Police arrested two suspects in the car, however Charlestown police said they are still looking for one suspect.

WHAS11’s Abby Lutz is at the scene and will have more information Friday afternoon.
