A 23-year old man is in police custody tonight after a stolen car was found crashed in East Medford.

At around 6 this morning Medford Police responded to a report of a stolen car near Hill Court and Keene Way, then spotted the stolen car on 10th and Tripp, but when a police officer tried to stop him he kept going.

"He followed the vehicle that was travelling at a high rate of speed, attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle, but the vehicle fled from him. He terminated the traffic stop due to safety."

Police ended up finding the car abandoned and crashed on Hillcrest and Modoc near Ruhl Park. They are saying a man in custody is a possible suspect but no name has yet been given.
