Previously released on 01-14-20

At 8:20 p.m. , officers conducted a traffic stop with a 2019 white Camaro at 49th Avenue North and 16Th Street North.

The driver of the camaro fled and our officers did not pursue. A short time later the car crashed into a house at 4634 19th Street North. Two people inside the car ran off and are at large.

No one was hurt inside the home. The fire dept. inspected the house and determined it is safe for the residents to remain there.

Officers found narcotics in the car, however the vehicle is still being processed so I don't have details.

The investigation is underway.
