DARTMOUTH — A state police pursuit of a suspect who allegedly fled on foot from a stolen vehicle in Dartmouth early Thursday morning has ended with the suspect's capture.

Residents of North Dartmouth and northern New Bedford may have noticed a Massachusetts State Police Air Wing helicopter circling an area between I-195 and Rt. 6 as the sky grew light just after 7 a.m. Thursday.

State police spokesperson Lt. Paul Sullivan said the chopper was helping in the search for a suspect in a foot pursuit that started at 4:15 a.m. with a stolen vehicle on I-195.
