While searching for the fleeing vehicle, one officer noted the driver of an SUV acting suspicious by avoiding the marked squad and changing its speeds. The officer noted a violation of the vehicle's registration and conducted a traffic stop.
One Pleasant Prairie officer made contact with the SUV and the three people inside. After gathering the VIN information, officers learned the SUV was listed as stolen out of Kenosha.
