On Wednesday, July 13th, 2016, at 2:06 a.m., Mount Pleasant Police units were on patrol when they came across two (2) vehicles at a high rate of speed. The vehicles were westbound on State Highway 20/Washington Avenue approaching Commerce Drive when Officers observed them. A Mount Pleasant Police unit pulled out and behind the vehicles and attempted to stop the vehicles, quickly observing that the vehicles had no license plates, but a Blue/White Dealer type plate on the rear. The Officer attempted to stop the vehicles, but after the Officer ignited his Emergency Lights/Siren the vehicles fled from Officers leading them on a Pursuit. Mount Pleasant units were assisted by Racine County Sheriff’s Office and Wisconsin State Patrol units during the pursuit. Due to the high rate of speed, reckless nature, with Public Safety in mind, Officers terminated the pursuit when the vehicles reached the Racine/Milwaukee County line.
Following termination of the pursuit, Officers in the area checked the various Car Dealerships to ascertain where the vehicles were stolen from. It was later discovered that the vehicles were stolen from the Racine Hyundai Dealership located at 9503 Washington Avenue in the Village of Sturtevant. Substantial damage was done to the business. Sturtevant Police Department is investigating the Burglary to Racine Hyundai.
This matter will continue to be Investigated by the Sturtevant Pleasant Police Department.
