No arrest made after suspect ditches stolen car, hides in nearby apartment

Toledo Police say no arrests have been made after officers followed a stolen vehicle to a Toledo apartment complex Wednesday, were the suspect ditched the car and ran into a nearby apartment.

Police say an officer saw a suspicious vehicle without its headlights on along Hill Avenue near McCord Road just after 4 a.m. Wednesday morning. The officer followed the car from a distance, but did not attempt to pull it over. Police say the suspect drove to the Oakwood Gardens apartments on Oakfield Drive and jumped out of the car. The car drifted into a snow bank and the suspect ran towards an apartment, police say.

Police say they found a handgun, binoculars, a flashlight and stolen license plates inside the stolen car.

According to Toledo Police, Lucas County Sheriff's Deputies arrived and followed the suspect's footprints in the snow to a nearby apartment window. Police say they saw a man laying on a bed inside the apartment, but the man did not answer the door when they knocked.

Police decided not to force their way into the apartment, but towed the vehicle as evidence. No arrests were made.
