Stolen Paramus Vehicle Involved in Cedar Grove Police Chase
Cedar Grove Police chased a stolen white Audi though the streets of Cedar Grove and into Verona Thursday morning.
A 2001 white Audi that was stolen in Paramus on Feb. 4 was involved in a police chase through Cedar Grove and Verona on Thursday afternoon, according to Cedar Grove police.
Officials said an officer saw the vehicle stopped in the middle of Bowden Road with its headlights out at 5:20 a.m. and stopped to investigate.
The Audi, occupied by three black men, took off, refusing to stop, police said.
Two officers chased the car through several Cedar Grove streets before the chase continued on Bloomfield Avenue in Verona.
“Due to road conditions and the excessive speed of the Audi, the officers discontinued attempts to stop the car for reasons of public safety,” police said.
The car was last seen heading east on Bloomfield Avenue toward Montclair, said Cedar Grove Police Chief Richard Vanderstreet.
The Bowden Road scene where the Audi was first stopped was checked for evidence, police said, but nothing was found.
