Thieves steal keys, cars from auto shop; lead deputy on chase

OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. -- Deputies in Ottawa County are searching for suspects accused of breaking into a car sales lot overnight.

It happened early Wednesday morning at Parkway Auto Sales, 2120 Chicago Drive in Georgetown Township.

The sheriff's office says it tried to pull a car over in the area of Chicago Drive near Port Sheldon Street when the driver led deputies on a chase.

Deputies terminated the chase at the intersection of Chicago Dr and Main St and the vehicle was last seen entering eastbound I-196.

During the pursuit, someone inside the car started throwing keys out the window and when deputies stopped to retrieve them they noticed the break-in at the shop.

The owner says the thieves smashed through the main office window and took keys and stole two cars from the shop, one of which has been recovered.
