Police Car Chase Starts In Quiet Neighborhood, Ends In Felony Charges

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL - Three teens are facing felony charges after leading Kalispell Police on a chase in a stolen car.

It started just before 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday on Fifth Avenue East.

A man called police to say that some of his belongings had just been stolen. He also said that he heard someone close his front door.

When he went to check on the situation, he heard someone get into his car and leave his driveway.

Police found the stolen car near Dry Bridge Park, but the driver kept going, making it all the way to an apartment complex off Kelly Road. That's where police said that all three teens ditched the car and started running.

"I saw them running on foot around a house over there and then jumping in their cars and splitting up," said Melissa Steiner, who is living on Fifth Avenue East and saw the car chase take off. Steiner said that the neighborhood is typically pretty quiet. She said she was caught off guard by the sudden flurry of police activity.

Police caught two of the teenagers right off, and found the third a little later Tuesday afternoon.

Charges filed in Flathead County Youth Court included burglary and motor vehicle theft, both felonies, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest, and driving without a license.
