ARCHBOLD, Ohio — Two Cleveland residents are in custody following a police chase in the Village of Archbold Monday.
Officers responded to a call of a stolen vehicle just after 4:30 p.m., according to the Archbold Police Department. The incident occurred at Terry Henricks Chrysler Dodge Jeep, located at 1935 S. Defiance St.
Officers began pursuing two vehicles. Neither driver stopped for officers on N. Defiance Street.
One of the vehicles, a black Dodge Challenger Hellcat stolen from Strongsville, crashed near County Road D and County Road 24. The driver, 29-year-old Thorne Carrington of Cleveland, was arrested and charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle and failure to comply with order or signal of a police officer.
Officers continued to follow the second vehicle, a stolen green Dodge Charger Hellcat which was located on West Street in Archbold. A search of the area and tips from residents led to the arrest of the second driver, 21-year-old Deztaney Spencer of Cleveland. Spencer has been charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle and failure to comply with order or signal of a police officer.
The name Deztaney Smith may sound familiar. The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office was looking for a woman by the same name. Spencer is accused of stealing an Ottawa County sheriff deputy's cruiser after a crash back on Dec. 12.
Spencer stole and crashed three different cars that day, according to authorities.
