EPHRATA, Wash. (AP) -- The Grant County sheriff's office says a man suspected of stealing tires from a Moses Lake car dealership was captured early Wednesday after a police chase that ended when an officer used a spike strip to stop the getaway car.

Deputies and police responded to a call around 3:30 a.m. that people were stealing tires off of vehicles at a Toyota dealership.

When officers arrived, the suspects sped off. After their tires were flattened, one 51-year-old suspect was arrested and a second suspect fled on foot.
