Suspect allegedly stole car and leads police in pursuit on foot in Monroe Premium Outlets parking lot

MONROE TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) – Monroe police released video Sunday showing a suspect leading officers in a foot chase through Premium Outlets after receiving a report of a stolen vehicle.

On August 20, police were called to the mall parking lot after the victim reported his car stolen. The police report says the victim discovered his vehicle was stolen through an app on his phone.

The report says officers tracked the location of the vehicle and found Casey Cole inside.

The video shows that once the officers got out of the police cruiser, Cole got out of the stolen car and led the police on a foot chase.

A police officer suffered stomach injuries during the chase, according to the report.

Police say when they asked Cole why she ran away, she replied, “I’m not saying.” Officers say Cole had outstanding warrants for his arrest.

According to the police report, Monroe police were again called to the mall the next day because an employee of one of the stores found credit cards and identification belonging to the victim and other other people in one of the trouser pockets of one of the stores.

Warren County court records show Cole faces one count of receiving stolen property and obstructing official business.
