The Pasco Police will be the first ones to say "just don't do this" even though the thieves were caught.

The victim of a car prowl helped police catch the thieves after a long car chase through Pasco. The victim caught the thieves red handed and when they tried to get away, he jumped in his car and followed them.

The chase started around the 800 block of S Myrtle all the way to road 68. Sometime during the chase, the thieves threw rocks at the victim and damaged his car.

During the chase, the victim managed to write down the license plate and then flag down a police officer. The officer tracked the plate and found the thieves and recovered the stolen property from multiple cars that night.
