VANCOUVER, Wash. - ODOT cameras captured what appears to be a man suspected of leading police on a chase in a stolen car early Wednesday morning.
Police dispatchers said the chase began in Fairview near Gresham just before 3 a.m. and made its way across the Glenn Jackson Bridge spanning the Columbia River.

The suspect made it up Interstate 205 into Vancouver where officers used spike strips to try and stop him.

The suspect then jumped out of the car and started running near Mill Plain Boulevard. That's when he was caught on camera heading into a wooded area.

A police dog was brought in to track him down and Vancouver Police arrested the suspect soon afterward.

Video shot at the scene showed police pulling evidence from an older Honda coupe with a badly damaged driver's side front wheel.

So far, he has not been identified.
