CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) – A chase that began in Salisbury ended in northeast Charlotte’s Hidden Valley neighborhood Thursday morning.

Police in Salisbury said a security/surveillance company worker spotted individuals trying to break into cars at the Colonial Village apartment complex at approximately 3:43 a.m. Officers tried to stop the vehicle that the suspects were in and a chase began.

According to the Salisbury Police Department, the chase went south on Interstate 85 into Charlotte. Eventually, the car, which was reported stolen out of Hickory, struck a pole at the intersection of Austin and Monteith drives in northeast Charlotte, authorities said.
