PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Two people were detained and a third suspect is on the loose after police tracked a stolen care from Vancouver to the Parkrose Heights neighborhood in Portland.

GPS was used to track the car which sped off before police could fully respond, PPB said. Spike strips were laid down but it’s unclear whether the car’s tires were deflated. Police didn’t chase the car, authorities said.

Multiple people eventually bailed from the car and tried to run, PPB said. Numerous officers cordoned off an area to search for the suspects near the intersection of NE Stanton Street and 121st Avenue.

None of the suspects, either those detained or the one being sought, have been identified.

PPB did not immediately report any injuries or a description of the car.
