SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are trying to find two burglars who ran after crashing the stolen car they were driving in.

Police got a burglary report when a resident came home to find a car backed into his driveway and several televisions and baby supplies outside of the ransacked house.

Police said the burglary suspects were driving recklessly to avoid Southside Precinct officers who were responding to a burglary in progress call at about 10:30 a.m. in the 13000 block of Canterbury Road.

The officers spotted the silver Chevrolet Monte Carlo the suspects were driving and tried to pull them offer, but backed away when the driver sped up.

Eagle 1, the SCMPD helicopter, went out to follow the Monte Carlo that continued to speed away from any police car that got close.

Before Eagle 1 could get in place, Central Precinct officers found the car abandoned in the Habersham Woods apartment complex, according to an SCMPD news release. The car had hit a utility pole at Whitebluff Road and Eisenhower Drive.

Patrol and canine officers went after them, but the suspects were not located. Most of the stolen items from the house were recovered.
