W.F. police seeking auction car thieves

West Fargo police are investigating two auction vehicle thefts that ended with a high-speed chase, one of the vehicles crashing and both drivers at large.

West Fargo police are investigating two auction vehicle thefts that ended with a high-speed chase, one of the vehicles crashing and both drivers at large.

An officer responded to Tri-State Auto Auction, 1650 E. Main Ave., after an alarm was triggered at about 2 a.m. Tuesday, Detective Tim Runcorn said.

The responding officer observed two vehicles - a white Pontiac Grand Prix and a red Corvette - leaving the parking lot, Runcorn said. The officer then pursued the Grand Prix while the Corvette fled the area.

The Grand Prix sped through a residential area where it rolled over after failing to make a curve on Sommerset Drive, Runcorn said. The driver fled the scene.

The Corvette was recovered Tuesday afternoon, police said. The incident is still under investigation.
