MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Officers responding to a house break-in found themselves in a vehicle chase Tuesday morning.

Officers were en route to a home on Oak Avenue when they spotted a white pick-up truck leaving the scene. After sending out a description of the suspect and issuing a lookout, a chase started.

Officers followed the truck as it headed towards Interstate 85. Patrol cars bumped the truck in an attempt to end the pursuit before it moved to the interstate.

The driver, unidentified, rolled the truck three or four times before it came to rest up against a telephone pole.

The suspect was taken into custody. There was not word on the man's medical condition.

Investigators on the scene say they collected several shotguns from the street after the chase ended. The guns had been taken from the home during the robbery.
