GLENDALE, Ohio -- Authorities are searching for a man they say fled from a vehicle in Glendale after being pursued by officers in a chase that started in Michigan.

A helicopter and police canines were used to search for the man after three others in the vehicle were arrested, including one person that was armed.

Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers say the pursuit started in Michigan, where it is believed the suspects -- who are said to be from Florida -- were operating a theft ring.

Troopers say they tried to stop the suspects in their vehicle, a silver Lincoln MKZ, but the group fled and were pursued for about two miles. The pursuit ended after authorities said speeds reached 100 mph and the driver began weaving in and out of traffic and driving on the shoulder.

The pursuit later resumed in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 275. Authorities used stop sticks on the ramp to the southbound lanes of Interstate 75.

Two of the vehicle's tires were flattened, which forced the suspects to exit at Sharon Road and drive south on Chester Road where the chase ended.

When the suspects exited the vehicle, three were arrested. One fled on foot, who is believed to be the driver, and remains at large.

"This vehicle and occupants in this vehicle have been involved in multiple crimes in the state of Michigan. Michigan authorities have been looking for this vehicle and the suspects involved in these crimes, everything from B&E's (breaking and entering), to credit card scams, even identity thefts," said Lt. Jack Tibbs.

Tibbs said no weapons were found on the suspects.

"We are looking for a particular weapon stolen in a B&E, a police officer's weapon and badge from Michigan. There's a possibility it's inside the car," said Tibbs.

Police were waiting to get a search warrant to officially sort through the vehicle.

No charges have been filed at this time.
