Walton County, Fla— A pursuit with a stolen vehicle that began in Okaloosa ended safely Thursday morning thanks to a multi-agency effort across three counties.

The car fled onto Interstate 10 and into Walton County and deputies from Walton County Sheriff’s Office followed the vehicle to the Bonifay exit where Bonifay Police Department deployed spike strips to stop the vehicle.

The strips were successful and three suspects were placed into custody just after 4am. Found inside the vehicle were black ski masks and burglary tools. The vehicle was towed from the scene and brought to the Walton County Sheriff’s Office.
