A car chase involving several local police departments ended Monday night with a crashed vehicle and a suspect in custody.

The pursuit began on Union Avenue and involved Bellevue, Ava-lon and Ross Township police cars trying to stop the man driving a stolen vehicle.

The pursuit traveled through Bellevue and into the City of Pitts-burgh, where, according to Bellevue Police Chief Matt Sentner, the pursuit itself was discontinued but officers continued to search the area for the vehicle.

Sentner said that the vehicle was found after it had been wrecked, and the suspect was apprehended while trying to run from the scene.

Sentner said that the man, arrested by Ross Police, also was wanted for escape from a detention facility.
