KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A parole absconder and car thief is sitting in the Kalamazoo County Jail after police say he stole a jeep from Comstock Village Apartments and led Public Safety officers on a high speed chase early yesterday morning.

The call came in just after 4a.m. Wednesday from the owner that her 2007 gold Jeep Compass was gone. 45-minutes later it was spotted on Gull Road headed into Kalamazoo.

The pursuit began, trailing thru the Edison and Westnedge Hill area where the driver crashed. After a brief foot chase, the 24-year-old was arrested on a list of charges, and the prosecutor’s office may pile on a few more.
