    Dispatch Text:

    On 10/20/2021 at approximately 1630 hours AST received a call about a suspicious vehicle in the area of Chena Pump Road in Fairbanks.  The vehicle was suspected to be involved in multiple burglaries in the area.  AST responded and located the red Ford F150.  AST attempted a traffic stop on the vehicle which then fled.  During the pursuit, the driver got onto eastbound Mitchell Expressway, crossed the median and began traveling eastbound in the westbound lane.  The vehicle continued until approximately Airport Way when it turned around and began traveling west.  It again crossed the center median and was traveling west in the eastbound lane of travel.  The vehicle was stopped after AST utilized the PIT maneuver.  The driver fled on foot and was apprehended on Geist Road.  The driver was identified as William Sims, age 28 of Fairbanks.

    An investigation revealed William was involved in burglarizing the residence off Chena Pump Road.  William was arrested and remanded on the charges of Theft 1, Burglary 1, Burglary 2, Felony Eluding and Assault 3.  Additional charges stemming from the pursuit are likely.

    During the pursuit, multiple motorists had to swerve off the roadway to avoid colliding with the suspect.  The suspect vehicle was a red Ford F150 with a white topper.  The pursuit took place between approximately 1630 hours and 1645 hours.  AST is asking that anyone who had to take evasive action and/or was placed in fear because of the actions of the suspect driver, please contact Troopers at 451-5100.
