SPRING GROVE VILLAGE (FOX19) -

Cincinnati police searched Spring Grove Cemetery early Friday for the driver who led them on a brief pursuit and then bailed from his vehicle, leaving behind a gun and drugs.

Officers tried to pull a vehicle over for on a traffic stop on Winton and Spring Grove avenues about 3:40 a.m., said Lt. Tim Brown, the night chief.

Instead of stopping, the driver took off, leading them on a brief pursuit.

Officers found his vehicle crashed and empty on Crawford Avenue.

They seized a weapon and bag of marijuana inside and called a K-9 to help them track the suspect, who ran into the cemetery.

The search ended unsuccessfully about a half hour later.
