Car heist suspects chased down in Byram
Two nabbed after Byram chase
Greenwich Police caught a pair of alleged car thieves before dawn this morning after a car and foot chase through downtown Byram.
Police responded at 4:57 a.m. to the reported theft of a grey Ford pickup truck from a Pemberwick Road home. The officers then spotted the truck at the intersection of Byram Road and West Putnam Avenue, Greenwich Police Lt. Richard Cochran said.
With police in pursuit, the truck drove onto West Putnam Avenue, back onto Byram Road and pulling over near Sherman Avenue, Cochran said.
The car raced away onto Byram Road when officers approached on foot, speeding through several stop signs before pulling into the driveway of a commercial building at 216 Byram Road, Cochran said.
A foot chase ensued, with police finding a male suspect hiding under a fallen tree near Hartford Avenue, Cochran said....

Grand Theft Auto Is Not A Game

But Here Is The Punch Line:
If you steal a vehicle and get involved in a police chase where you run several stop signs abandon the vehicle and force the police to continue pursuit in a foot chase and get caught hiding under a tree you get a $10,000 bond.
But if you are the infamous Greenwich High School water balloon boy who talked back to the school resource officer you get 50,000 volts from a taser and a $50,000 Bond
