A Maryland man just released from jail allegedly stole a 5-ton military vehicle and led police on a highway chase on Friday, according to a news release from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.
At around 6:35 p.m., deputies with the sheriff’s office responded to a home in the town of Bel Air for a report of a stolen 1986 923-A 5-ton military vehicle. The vehicle was privately owned.
The suspect, who authorities identified as 38-year-old Michael D. Stevens II from Abingdon, drove through Bel Air and onto Interstate 95. Deputies pursued him down the interstate, attempting to use stop sticks to disable the vehicle to no avail.
