HARRISBURG, Pa. — UPDATE: Police have arrested the suspect involved in a dramatic chase with police caught on camera in Harrisburg on Wednesday.ADVERTISING
According to a criminal complaint, police took Mister “Pee Wee” Ussery III into custody on drug related charges this week.
In October, undercover police met with Pee Wee and performed a controlled purchase in which they received crack cocaine from the suspect.
Then in November, police performed another controlled buy, again receiving crack cocaine from Ussery.
This time, Ussery was taken into custody by police after a search of his vehicle revealed money, a digital scale, crack cocaine and a HK ,45 handgun that was previously reported stolen.
Surveillance video captured the dramatic moments of a police chase Wednesday afternoon in Harrisburg.
The video shows a police cruiser using a Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT) maneuver to force the suspect’s car off North Front Street and onto the sidewalk.
After the car came to a stop, the suspect can be seen running from the scene with officers chasing on foot.
Harrisburg Police said the incident was part of an Attorney General’s Office investigation, with assistance from Pennsylvania State Police and the Harrisburg Police Department.
It is not yet known if the suspect was captured.
