MILWAUKEE - It’s a crime spree that has spread through at least four communities in the Milwaukee area.

A man in a stolen blue Ford Fusion walked up to two different people in Shorewood and tried to steal their cell phones. Glendale Police chased that suspect, but weren’t able to catch up with him.
Menomonee Falls Police have dash camera video of the same suspect trying to get away.

"Our officer was at about 75-80 miles per hour and the suspect vehicle was pulling away the whole time,” said Menomonee Falls Police Captain Mark Waters.

Police were chasing the car because it was used in two gas drive-offs in Menomonee Falls on Friday, and one on Saturday.

Milwaukee Police found the car near Holton and Burleigh, and now all departments are working together to find the suspect.
