On Thursday, March 16th 2023, at 3:56 p.m., Officers from BPD’s Special Assignment Unit were patrolling on Church Street when they received a delayed notification that a stolen black Dodge Durango had passed them. Officers began searching for the vehicle but were then notified by dispatch advising that a black Dodge Durango had crashed into a fence in the 1500 block of Annie. As the officers arrived at the crash scene, they observed 5 suspects, 2 females and 3 males, walking away from the vehicle.
