The high speed chase began in Bridgeport and ended in a crash in Downtown New Haven early Tuesday morning. New Haven Police confirmed that they were searching for four suspects in the area of Edgewood Avenue at Ella T. Grasso Boulevard Tuesday.
According to officials, a suspicious vehicle was spotted in Bridgeport by officers on duty. The vehicle refused to stop, and engaged officers in a pursuit.
Units deployed stop sticks during the pursuit, but the vehicle continued to flee from officers.
The chase continued on parts of Interstate 95 until the suspects’ vehicle became completely disabled in New Haven at 1361 Ella T. Grasso Boulevard.
Police say three suspects then fled on foot while another stayed behind in the vehicle.
The suspects who ran traveled down Ella Grass Boulevard. One was arrested after he unsuccessfully attempted to jump a fence. Another was detained later while a third was arrested back at the suspects’ vehicle. Police said that three of the four suspects are in custody, and they are continuing their search for the fourth. The suspects have been identified as 28-year-old Justin Cruz, 32-year-old Lorenzo Jones, and 33-year-old Duojuan Allman.
Inside the vehicle, officers located 2.5 grams of marijuana, .5 grams of crack/cocaine, and other suspicious items.
The three are facing multiple similar charges, including Possession of Narcotics and Interfering with an Officer, among other charges.
Police are still looking to identify the fourth suspect.
