Rochester Police Searching for Car Thief
(ABC 6 News) – A man is still on the loose Thursday after causing a serious commotion in southeast Rochester. Police officers flooded the area near the Olmsted County Fairgrounds Thursday afternoon looking for a man they say stole a car.
There were roughly a dozen officers and undercover officials at the area where they last saw the man. They were lined up on 3rd Avenue Southeast at around 6:00pm. Police say the man stole the car near Apache Mall then drove to this neighborhood. They were pursuing him when he parked it and ran off. They believe he went into a house but they searched it and the surrounding area and couldn't find him.
He's described as being in his 30's, white, and around 6 foot tall. He had a shaved head and goatee and was wearing jeans and a black sweatshirt. Police don't consider the man dangerous, but they're urging you to call them if you have any information.
