Suspect in custody after stealing Pooler Police SUV

POOLER, GA (WTOC) - Georgia State Patrol confirmed to WTOC that there has been a chase and crash involving a Pooler Police Department vehicle at the intersection of Quacco Road and Pine Barren Road.

A male suspect got into a Pooler Police SUV at Pooler Parkway and Maxwell Drive around 3:20 p.m. Police are still investigating why the cars were initially stopped at that location.

"When I arrived on the scene, there was a Pooler Police vehicle here at the intersection of Pine Barren Road and Quacco Road in the ditch that had been involved in a crash. We do believe speed and, also, alcohol would be a factor in this collision," said GSP Trooper Dustin Stone.
