VIA APD: On Wednesday morning, 11-12-14, at about 12:30 AM, an officer was checking motel parking lots around IH-40 West and Soncy. He noticed a suspicious vehicle and ran the license plate. 

 The plate showed to be stolen. He tried to stop the car, a white Nissan four door, and it drove away west bound on IH-40. The car went almost to Arnot Road before the driver turned around and came back toward the city. An APD officer was able to spike the car between Helium and Soncy. The car would exit, then re-enter the interstate at different locations. 

 It went to almost Bell Street, turned around and went back to Bush St. Some of the car’s tires had gone flat. The driver bailed out on foot and ran. A female passenger stayed in the car. The driver was taken into custody after an officer deployed a Taser to end the short foot pursuit. The driver was Jacob Sawyer Gregory, WM 23. He was booked into the Potter County Detention Center for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and evading arrest. The car he was driving had plates stolen from another vehicle taken in a burglary in Amarillo. 

 The car itself was reported stolen out of Roswell, NM. There was also a good amount of property that had been stolen in other incidents located in the car. No one was injured in this incident. This incident is still being investigated at this time.
