A short pursuit ends with a car smashing into a porch and suspects fleeing on foot.
It happened about 4:30am in LaVista. A green Chevy two door matched the description of a car leaving the scene of an attempted auto theft.
A LaVista officer spotted the suspect’s car which attempted to speed away. The driver lost control and hit the porch of a vacant house near 76th and Park View in LaVista.
The two occupants of the car fled the scene.
The owner of the vehicle told police no one had permission to drive it.
The investigation continues.
