EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio — A woman tried to take matters into her own hands when she spotted her stolen vehicle being driven by someone else in East Cleveland on Saturday, according to the East Cleveland Police Department.
Around noon Saturday, an East Cleveland Police Department officer saw two cars speeding by, with one car chasing the other.
Police were told a woman had called 911 to say she had located her stolen car and was pursuing it.
She told the police dispatcher that she was “going to get her car back whether the police help her or not.”
The police told him to stop chasing the vehicle, so they could apprehend the person who was fleeing in his stolen car.
The stolen vehicle, a Chevrolet Cobalt, fled towards Arlington Road, reaching a speed of 40 mph, police said.
The driver of the stolen Cobalt drove through a field, through bushes and into the parking lot of an apartment complex on Brackland Road in Cleveland.
The driver exited the vehicle and fled on foot.
Police said he had not been arrested, but had been positively identified. The police issued several felony and misdemeanor arrest warrants against him.
No one was injured, police said.
