Thanks for these articles. I was actually picking up my kid from daycare while the cops had just busted the teens for smoking in the garage. It looked as though they had recovered a few back packs, tc that were dropped in the street during the chase. This house was in a very nice neighborhood only about a block or two away from columbia high school.
