By rlsmetro on

Police in Clifton took one person into custody and are looking for two other individuals wanted for leading them on a multi-city pursuit that ended in Essex County Sunday evening. 

According to a preliminary investigation, the Passaic County agency began to follow a vehicle stolen out of New York when the suspect sped away, leading them to a pursuit shortly before 6:10 p.m. 

According to reports, the high-speed pursuit made its way onto the southbound lanes of the Garden State Parkway, where speeds reached over 70 mph. 

The suspect exited the highway at exit 144 Newark-Irvington, where other police agencies engaged in the pursuit that ended at Grove Street and 14th Avenue intersection with three suspects bailing from the car, reports said. 

A male was taken into custody after a brief foot pursuit, but police believe two other occupants escaped and remained at large. 

Police reported no injuries resulting from the pursuit.
