Police say the cars sped off, but they were able to stop the red car and took three people in for questioning.

Another officer pursued the Montero, but called off the chase because of heavy traffic. The Montero was later found abandoned on Wickham Drive and turned out to be stolen.

Police continue to investigate and the driver of the Montero is still on the loose.
