(KMOV) – A burglary suspect led officers on a pursuit through several local municipalities Friday afternoon after he stole a puckup truck and reportedly tried to hit an officer with the vehicle as the officer tried to make a stop.

The chase started in Hillsdale around 3 p.m., and from there, the chase went through Pine Lawn, Beverly Hills, Velda Village Hills and Uplands Park. These areas are all in north St. Louis County.

The chase raised safety concerns for area residents, and officials placed a Pine Lawn elementary school on lockdown to protect students from any possible danger since the pursuit was going on around the time of school dismissal.

Police say they believe they know who the suspect is and where he lives.

He ditched the stolen truck just a few blocks from his home, they say.
