Fleeing driver arrested after StarChase deployment, cocaine found inside vehicle
Posted On: 12th June, 2019
Officers were able to arrest a fleeing driver and recover a large quantity of cocaine after tagging the eluding vehicle with a StarChase GPS tag. #19-256.
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.
