Cops Chase U-Haul Truck From Portage to Chicago

Police apparently chased a U-Haul truck driver through two states Wednesday night before the vehicle was finally pulled over in Chicago.

Reports say the chase started in Portage, Indiana -- and ended on Chicago's South Side near 63rd and Parnell.

Apparently, the driver of the U-Haul and a passenger -- both wanted for fraud -- ran away.

NBC 5 was told by a witness at the scene police caught one of the people but a search with K-9 units was still underway for the second suspect.

Chicago police deferred to Portage authorities who told reporters to call back Thursday morning and declined to comment further.
