Early this morning, while on routine patrol in the area of Hamilton and Proctor, Ofc. Frost observed a vehicle that had been reported stolen. The vehicle sped off for a moment, then the driver fled on foot from the vehicle. Ofc. Frost pursued the driver on foot, caught him and placed him under arrest. A handgun was seized and the vehicle was returned to the owner.

Charges are pending review by the Genesee County Prosecutor's Office. Great job Ofc. Frost!
