A stolen car has been found and the suspect was arrested Wednesday morning.

St. Cloud Police Assistant Chief Jeff Oxton says an off-duty police officer saw a Porsche sedan that was reported stolen. On-duty officers went to the area and tried to stop the car just before 11 a.m. The driver of the vehicle refused to pull over and a short chase began. The speed of the chase stayed low, never going above the speed limit, but the driver refused to stop.

The chase ended when the squad car collided with the stolen vehicle.

The driver of the stolen sedan was identified as 35-year-old Bounkeng Sinthavong of St. cloud. He was arrested and taken to the Stearns County Jail for the alleged theft of vehicle and vehicle pursuit.
