SALISBURY — A 15-year-old girl was taken into custody after authorities used stop sticks (a tire deflation device) to bring a high-speed chase to a halt this morning.
Shortly after 9 a.m., authorities were notified that a Carson High School student’s car keys were missing and a 2011 Ford Fusion had been stolen.
China Grove Police Chief E.M. Kluttz saw the blue Fusion pass him about 20 minutes later on Old Concord Road.
But the driver had no plans to stop, he said.
Kluttz chased the vehicle onto Glover Road, to St. Paul’s Church Road and back to Old Concord Road with speeds reaching more than 90 mph.
Rowan County Deputy J.W. Lentz set up stop sticks near Cline’s Landscapes in the 2200 block of Old Concord Road, blowing the car’s tires as it passed.
No one was injured in the incident.
The 15-year-old was immediately taken to Juvenile Services.
