IMPD officers engage in a vehicle pursuit which leads to the arrest of four people and a number of drugs and guns taken off the street

On December 12, 2017 just before 3:30 p.m. officers with Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) attempted to make a traffic stop on a vehicle in the 1500 block of East Prospect Street.   The driver refused to stop and led officers on a pursuit that ended in the 2500 block of Depauw Road.  At this time, the driver and passenger fled on foot into a residence in the 2500 block of Endsley Drive.  Shortly thereafter the two males surrendered themselves to officers.  The vehicle they were driving was reported stolen from the city of Franklin Indiana earlier this month.  As officers continued their investigation they were able to recover 16 to 20 lbs. of marijuana, 11 guns, 2 stolen vehicles and over 91 thousand dollars in cash.

Officers arrested 18 year-old Brian Woods, 41 year-old Larry Gross, 52 year-old Robbie Bratcher and a juvenile in connections with this incident.  All charging information will be released by the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office. The IMPD greatly appreciate the cooperation and tips provided by the community to make our city a safer place to live.
