One Car Break-In Suspect Caught, Another Escapes

Savannah-Chatham police are busy hunting down a suspect involved in at least four car break-ins this morning. Witnesses reported two young men in a purple Saturn breaking into cars and leaving the scene.

Police spotted the Saturn, which was reported stolen about a week ago. Officers followed the car around the Hitch Village area, cutting them off at 37th and East Broad. The suspects hopped out and ran off.

Patrol officers and K-9s caught and arrested one suspect, but the second is still on the loose.

Police say both of the suspects are juveniles. There is no word yet on whether or not they are involved with other car break-ins.
