OKLAHOMA CITY - A crime that started in Elk City ended in a high-speed car chase here Thursday morning.

Initial reports indicate around 8 a.m., an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper attempted to pull over a vehicle towing ATV trikes that was reportedly stolen more than 100 miles away.

Elk City Police officers used the GPS on the stolen truck to trace it to an area near I-44 and I-240 in Oklahoma City.

When state troopers caught up to the vehicle, however, officials say the suspect refused to stop and led police on a high-speed chase.

The suspect eventually crashed the vehicle near I-35 and S.E. 66th in a nearby Burger King parking lot.

Authorities say the suspect, later identified as 27-year-old Monchez Denzel Anderson, ran away and tried to carjack three different vehicles on the interstate before officers eventually caught up with him.

"He crossed both sides, north and southbound sides of the interstate and apparently he tried to open doors on several cars while our officers were in foot pursuit with him," said OHP Capt. Paul Timmons. "Pretty dangerous situation."

Anderson was armed with a pistol, Timmons said.

The suspect is a convicted felon, with drug, firearms and burglary charges on his record.

He was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.
