Fleeing driver caught with StarChase tag, drugs found in stolen vehicle
Posted On: 28th December, 2018
A driver fleeing from police in a stolen vehicle was arrested after officers tagged the vehicle with StarChase and tracked the vehicle. Meth was found inside the vehicle. #18-493.
The StarChase system is a proven, less-lethal technology that provides a significant tactical advantage to law enforcement officers in failure-to-yield or high-risk flight situations. Once a vehicle is tagged it enables a dispatcher to track the suspect in real time using a web-based mapping program. The officer remains on the street, a potentially dangerous pursuit is avoided, and the offender can then be safely apprehended.
