GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - State troopers and Greenville police officers searched for a man who led police on a high-speed chase late Monday night in a stolen car.

Greenville police said the car was taken from the Speedway on East 10th Street. It was unlocked with the engine running.

The car was spotted nearby and officers tried to stop it.

Instead, the driver sped off, and Greenville officers didn’t continue to follow it because their policy restricts chases for that type of crime.

State troopers did chase the stolen car and it ended on Cherry Court. Police said the driver got out of the vehicle and ran.

Both Greenville police and the Highway Patrol searched for the man but he was never found.
