After another foray into Pepper Pike earlier in the evening, Geauga County sheriff’s deputies sent out a bulletin at 8:39 p.m. Sept. 21 that they were in pursuit of a Black Ford Explorer suspected in the latest series of “smash-and-grab” thefts from parked cars.
These thefts had just occurred in Chesterland and Bainbridge Township at the Chagrin Valley Athletic Club and Kenston High School, with the suspect SUV heading west along Route 306 from Cedar Road. From there, the suspects continued westbound on Fairmount past Caves Road at speeds of 100 mph and passing cars on the double yellow line.
Police and sheriff’s deputies decided to terminate the chase at that point, losing sight of the Explorer as it eventually made its way southbound on SOM Center Road from Fairmount.
