Troopers Arrest Three After Pursuit

At 2 PM today helicopter Air 5 of the Massachusetts State Police Air Wing located and began following a stolen Lexus that was on the move in Ashland. The car had previously been stolen out of Peabody and had eluded several local police departments in the Natick area as well as other MetroWest towns.

 Air 5 advised MSP Troop H that the stolen vehicle was traveling west on Rt. 9 through Southborough and Westborough and onto Rt. 495 Northbound. MSP cruisers began responding to that area.

At 2:08 PM MSP Air 5 advised that the vehicle, a 2002 Lexus IS, was is passing Rt. 290.

The suspect vehicle took the turn onto Rt 117 in Bolton and reversed direction, re-entering Rt 495 on the southbound side. Two MSP K9 Unit cruisers also responded to the area of 117 and one of them located the stolen vehicle and began pursuing it. The stolen vehicle by that time had crossed into Troop C and Troop C Headquarters assumed command and control of the pursuit.

A short time later, as the pursuit continued, the stolen vehicle entered Rt. 290 west in Marlborough.

Troopers set up stop sticks on 290 west between Solomon Pond Rd in Marlborough and Green St. in Northborough. The stolen vehicle struck the stop sticks and crashed into another vehicle and came to rest in the median strip. There were no injuries to the occupants of the other vehicle.

Numerous Troopers converged on the scene and secured the three occupants of the stolen vehicle.

Two of the suspects were transported to UMass Medical Center with minor injuries. A juvenile was transported to the State Police-Leominster Barracks for booking.

Subsequent investigation determined that the stolen vehicle was involved in a prior crash with two other vehicles on the ramp from Rt. 495 S to Rt. 290 W in Marlborough.

We will update on charges when that info is available.
