Car thief eludes police
Special to the Times

BLYTHE - Blythe Police gave chase to a driver in a stolen vehicle the morning of Jan. 31, but were unable to catch the suspect.

Responding to a call from a business in the 1600 block of E. Hobsonway, officers found that during the night, a fence on the east side of the storage yard had been cut and a blue 1989 Ford Bronco had been driven from the scene.

The following morning around 1 a.m., a patrol officer spotted the vehicle driving in the area of Alameda and Chanslorway. The vehicle left eastbound on Chanslorway where the officer caught up and attempted to make a stop. The vehicle continued past Olive Lake Boulevard then turned north on dirt farm roads where the patrol unit was not able to follow.

Additional units responded but were unable to locate the vehicle.

The vehicle was later found abandoned in a wash in Ehrenberg, Ariz. on Feb. 2, by the La Paz County Sheriff's Department.

Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the Blythe Police Department at 922-6111 or anonymously by calling Crime Stop at 921-CARE (2273) or by email at .

For those of you who think it's funny that an IDIOT can elude the police, think about this:

(1) IDIOT is driving a 4x4 that isn't his and doesn't have to worry about the safety of the public, or tearing up someone else's stolen Bronco.

(2) BPD officer is probably driving a Crown Vic that doesn't stand a chance off-road with the Bronco.

(3) Think about very restrictive pursuit policies that can actually save lives by not pursuing.

(4) Think about if that was your vehicle that was stolen, like Janice Lyon's truck. Wouldn't be so funny and IDIOT wouldn't be such a hero would he?

(5) Just think about it before you speak.

@(deleted) Fan!~So you're a fan of "keith" er? I no longer wonder why people like "keith" er do what they do. I understand anger or lack of faith in the Police but to glorify the behavior of a known criminal is disgusting. Making light of police chases is not funny, INNOCENT people are hurt and killed everyday due to idiots thinking they are above the law. IT'S NOT FUNNY.

This guy must have learned to drive from Keither. If so, the boys in blue don't stand a chance! Dirt road police chases-2, BPD-0.

That's hillarious that the perp was able to cross the river without being detected in an 89 bronco. Maybe they blended in with all the other 89 broncos that fill our streets!!

Why didn't Blythe's finest call in there big Tonka truck to sniff out the perp? NM, I guess Officer (deleted). uses it to harass people taking evening strolls or biking on Hobsonway. (deleted), LOL. Here's a tip, less active shooter training and more driving lessons.
