Dash-cam footage from a police car in a high-speed chase in Arizona shows bales of marijuana being thrown at it from the window of the suspects’ car ahead.

The pursuit, which reached speeds over 100 mph, turned into a short foot chase after the suspects stopped their car and fled, according to a statement on the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook. However, the two men were successfully stopped and arrested…the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office said.

About 374 pounds of marijuana were recovered as evidence, the sheriff’s office said, adding that not all the thrown pot was found because four or five vehicles not involved in the chase stopped to grab some of the tossed bales before police could get back to them.

The high-speed chase happened last Wednesday morning when a deputy officer was monitoring traffic on a Casa Grande highway, the sheriff’s office said.

The officer noticed a 2006 White Trailblazer traveling much faster than the other vehicles on the roadway and attempted to stop the car. The vehicle led multiple police units on a high-speed chase.

The Trailblazer eventually went into the campus of Central Arizona College, where Pinal County Sheriff’s deputies ahead of the chase set up spike strips that successfully deflated the Trailblazer’s front tires, police said.

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I’ve never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again.

I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist.

Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it.

I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk.

This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.

I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a reply
