State Police Chase on 195 Ends in Fairhaven
FAIRHAVEN — State police have caught a suspect after he allegedly led troopers on a short, low-speed chase down three different SouthCoast highways — with a flat tire.
Early reports indicate the pursuit started on Rt. 140 northbound at around 12:46 p.m. Thursday, according to Massachusetts State Police spokesperson Lt. Paul Sullivan.
Troopers were responding to a reported stolen motor vehicle, Sullivan said, although further details on the cause of the call were not immediately available.
From Rt. 140, the suspect went onto I-195 eastbound.
According to Sullivan, the chase took place at low speeds due to the suspect jumping a curb and driving with a flat tire.
The pursuit ended on Rt. 240 in Fairhaven with the suspect being taken into custody on four warrants.
The suspect has not yet been publicly identified.
