Duo Charged With Leading Police on Car Chase, Robbing Hilliard Speedway
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Two suspects were arrested after leading police on a multi-city car chase following a cigarette theft at a Thursday morning Hilliard gas station, according to investigators.
Columbus officers apprehended Andrew Foster and Steven Farrow in Worthington after the men allegedly exited their vehicle in an attempt to flee on foot following a car chase.
The chase began outside Speedway on Fishinger Boulevard, when a passing police officer heard an alarm sound at the gas station and then witnessed a man run out of the store and get into a waiting car.
The driver of that car sped away after the Hilliard officer pulled into the Speedway parking lot, sparking a high-speed chase on snowy roads that soon grew to include Columbus officers.
Foster and Farrow allegedly led pursuing officers through parts of Hilliard, Upper Arlington, and Columbus before stopping their vehicle in Worthington.
Foster and Farrow tried to elude capture after exiting their car, but were soon caught in a ravine near 286 McCoy Ave.
After arresting the suspects, officers found thousands-of-dollars worth of cigarettes allegedly stolen from the Fishinger Boulevard Speedway, according to police records. Those cigarettes were eventually returned to the gas station.
Foster and Farrow are each charged with breaking and entering, as well as fleeing police. They are expected to appear in a Franklin County courtroom on Friday.
