(KMOV) – Police have concluded their search of a parking garage at the former Forest Park Hospital following a vehicle theft Tuesday morning.
 
Police say they were conducting an investigation in the 7000 block of Horner when an officer witnessed the suspect driving a car believed to be stolen on Dale. The suspect fled and struck a parked car, a fence, and roads signs in the 1300 block of Kraft until it ended up in the front yard of a Dogtown home.
 
The suspect then fled the scene on foot. 
 
The car was found in a yard at a home near Dale and Kraft and had been reported stolen from the City of St. Louis. Police previously stated a pickup truck had also been stolen but a news release did not acknowledge this. 
 
Police are searching for a 34-year-old black man with a tattoo on his right forearm. He was wearing a blue long-sleeved shirt, shorts, and dark glasses. 
 
The investigation is ongoing
