Early Morning Chase Lands Five Juveniles in Jail


Five juvenile males are in jail after a vehicle chase that led several law enforcement agencies from Salem into Clark County early this morning. 

At approximately 3:18a, Salem Police Officer Jordan Taylor was dispatched to a suspicious vehicle. 

Once Officer Taylor initiated his emergency lights and sirens in an attempt to stop the vehicle on East Market Street, the vehicle sped away and headed south on South Jackson Street. 

According to Taylor, the vehicle headed south into Borden, where it became disabled and the five juveniles fled on foot. 

All five were taken into custody after a brief foot chase. 

The Salem Police Department, Washington County Sheriff’s Department, Clark County Sheriff’s Department, and Indiana State Police were all involved in the pursuit. 

No other details were provided.
