Stolen car chase ends outside Miami Valley Gaming with 2 arrested
WARREN COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - A stolen vehicle chase ended outside of the Miami Valley Gaming Monday with the arrests of two suspects.
A plane from the Ohio State Highway Patrol Aviation Section was flying over I-75 around 11 a.m. when a speeding Dodge Challenger was spotted, according to troopers.
The Challenger, which was stolen out of Louisville, was clocked going 92mph in a 65mph zone, OSP said.
Troopers on the ground tried to stop the vehicle several times but the driver continued and thus began the pursuit.
After starting and stopping the chase a few times, OSP said they decided to let the aviation unit continue following the vehicle from above.
Troopers set up stop sticks at OH-63 and OH-741 and the stolen vehicle eventually stopped at the entrance of Miami Valley Gaming, OSP explained.
Two 22-year-old men, Rolando Perez and Luis Angel Torres, got out of the Challenger and took off running, troopers told FOX19 NOW.
The suspects were arrested in the casino’s parking lot.
Perez was indicted in Warren County on Jan. 17 for failure to comply, receiving stolen property, obstruction of official business, and possession of criminal tools, court records say.
The records also say Torres was indicted on obstructing official business.
