Casper Police Arrest Robbery Suspect After Chase on Thursday Afternoon
Casper police arrested a suspect involved in a Natrona County-wide conspiracy of burglaries and firearms thefts after he and a female passenger fled in a sport utility vehicle from Mills that ended in a crash on South Wolcott Street on Thursday afternoon, a police spokeswoman said.
The unidentified suspect is believed to be related to the case of Jason Jennings, who was arrested this week and charged with multiple felonies including aggravated burglary, burglary and unlawful use of a credit card, Rebekah Ladd said.
Thursday afternoon, Mills police saw the suspect and tried to apprehend him, but he drove away and a chase ensued, she said.
The chase also involved the Natrona County Sheriff's Office and Casper police, Ladd said.
The suspect's SUV hit a truck a couple of blocks south of where it crashed into a tree in the 1100 block of South Wolcott. The truck sustained minor damage and the driver was apparently unhurt, she said.
The two occupants of the car were taken to the Wyoming Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries, Ladd said.
The male suspect faces multiple felony charges, she said.
There is apparently no threat to the public at this time, she said.
However, the investigation is ongoing and there may be other suspects in a county-wide burglary ring, Ladd said.
