It’s the second escape attempt by a carjacker who ends up drenched after trying to drive through a flooded area with the cops in pursuit.

Police helicopter footage captured the dramatic finale of the car chase in King County, Washington on January 12.

The footage begins after two suspects throw a stolen automobile down the center of a south Bellevue street.

The chase had begun ahead of time, after Issaquah police tried to stop a stolen car in Seattle.

After police chased the suspects in Bellevue, they rushed into a parking lot and were filmed trying to pull up to various parked cars as the helicopter pilot investigates their actions with officers downstairs.

The car that was carjacked was a brown KIA Sportage SUV, which could be worth up to $33,000

One of the suspects, dressed in a blue jacket, carjacks a girl in a KIA Sportage, driving the driving force down the road, at the same time as two police cars confront him.

An officer attempts to deal with him, but the suspect gets into the SUV and backs up, hitting the patrol car and driving off.

Although the suspect in the blue jacket fled, his accomplice dressed in black was arrested.

The King County Sheriff’s Air Support Unit later confirmed that the arrested main man already had a warrant for his arrest.

Police then passed the second suspect in the stolen SUV through Issaquah and towards the Snoqualmie River.

Although he was cornered by a police officer and another unmarked black police car, he rammed the trunk of the SUV into the patrol car and fled.

King County Sheriff’s Air Assistance said the suspect later unsuccessfully attempted to steal a car from someone’s warehouse, before continuing to flee from officers in the SUV.

Footage then shows the cops chasing the suspect through a rural area towards an unhelpful finish next to a river.

The helicopter pilot said the suspect was about to “hit a pile of water”.

The pilot tells the officers in the background that the person “just went into very deep water, it protects half the car, I don’t think he will be able to do too much”.

The driver is then seen abandoning the stolen car and wading through the water with his palms up.

He is seen being held by officers because the video ends.

When the suspect realized his luck had finally run out, he got out of the car and put his hands on his hands to give up

King County Sheriff’s Air Support explained how the pursuit began. They said: “Police were following a stolen car equipped with LoJack [a GPS recovery app].

“The suspects dumped the car in Issaquah in the middle of the street and one of them jacked up another car with officers right behind them.

“The suspect later unsuccessfully attempted another carjacking in someone’s storage and continued to attempt to flee from pursuing officers.

“The suspect eventually dumped the automobile in water on a flooded street and was taken into custody.”
