The video, provided by a homeowner on Suzannah Avenue in Harrison Twp., shows a blue Chevrolet pickup truck pull into a driveway just before 10 a.m. A man gets out of the truck and uses what appears to be bolt cutters to cut the lock before loading the bike into the bed of the truck.

The owner of the bike was notified the bike was recovered after the crash and has retrieved the bike.

Huber Heights police spotted and pursed the truck on Needmore Road before 12:30 p.m., wanted for both having a stolen license plate on it and suspected in the bike theft, according to investigators.

Truck caused three crashes during the pursuit. The first crash involved the truck and a Huber Heights police cruiser. The second involved the truck and another vehicle on Needmore Road at the I-75 overpass.

No injuries were reported in those two crashes, investigators said.

The third crash resulted with the pickup truck on its top on Needmore Road and Foster Avenue.

Two men in the truck were taken into custody after the third crash. A third person in the truck, a woman, fled the scene but was later captured and also taken into custody.

The three were loaded into ambulances and transported to area hospitals, according to our crew on the scene.
