Colchester, VT – Colchester Police are looking for a group of people they say led them on a chase in a stolen car. Police say the same group broke into four other cars.

Police say they got a call around 4 a.m. about a group of four people breaking into cars at Severance Corners Village.

Police say they pursued a Kia seen driving away from the scene. The pursuit went down Blakely Road. Police say the car drove through a lawn near Shadow Cross Bridge and two people got out and ran off. 

Police say the Kia was stolen and they think this group may be connected to other recent car crimes.

Sgt. Jesse Treier with Colchester Police says since August 1 the department has had 17 incidents of stolen cars. He urges victims and neighbors to check surveillance video.

“We would love to get a call from you, we would love to hear if you have any video footage that would help us identify suspects,” he said, adding that people should lock their cars and not keep any valuables inside.
