Washington police officers Monday night engaged in a foot chase for a suspect who may have been injecting drugs while sitting in a car.
Detective Sgt. Brad Erisman said an officer spotted the suspect possibly “shooting up” in a gas station parking lot in the 900 block of East Fifth Street around 10:15 p.m.
The suspect, whose name has not been released, ran away from the scene after the officer spotted him, Erisman said.
Police know who the suspect is and had his car towed.
Drug paraphernalia and possible drugs were found in the vehicle, Erisman said.
The suspect ran toward Eighth Street and had still not been located Tuesday morning, Erisman added.
