OSHP’s Aviation Unit is able to tell Dayton police officers on the ground where the car is going.

At one point the two suspects ditch the car and start running in the area of Hillcrest Avenue.

The helicopter’s thermal camera catches the suspect hopping a fence in the backyard of a home on Alpine Way.

Officers are able to find one of the suspects and take them into custody.

Information about why the suspects ran from police or the charges they face was not available.

We are working to learn more and will update this story as new information becomes available.

Recently, our OSHP Aviation Section collaborated with the Dayton Police Department to apprehend these suspects that attempted to flee and elude ground units during a vehicle pursuit. 🚁🚓 #Teamwork
