MOORESVILLE – For the third time in two days, suspects in a stolen vehicle early Thursday morning led Mooresville officers on a chase before crashing, according to police.

This time, suspects in a stolen car from Cornelius led police on a chase from Mooresville to Troutman and then to Davidson, where the vehicle wrecked, according to the Mooresville Police Department.

Four suspects, three of them minors, were arrested, MPD said in a press release.

Officers responded to a call at 1:16 a.m. about suspects attempting to break into vehicles in a subdivision off Waterlynn Road. Responding officers tried to stop a vehicle matching a description given by the caller, but the driver refused.

The vehicle sped north to Troutman and south to Davidson, where officers deployed speed sticks. The vehicle crashed, and four suspects fled. Officers caught all four and arrested them. The vehicle was reported stolen in Cornelius.

Police charged Christopher James Marquis Moses, 18, of Gastonia, with possession of a stolen motor vehicle and resisting/obstructing a law enforcement officer. He was transported to the Iredell County Detention Center and given a $10,000 secured bond.

The three other suspects face similar charges, but their names were not released because they are younger than 18.

Along with the Mooresville Police Department, officers from Statesville and Davidson, and N.C. Highway Patrol troopers took part in the chase and search.

The chase and arrest came a day after a similar early-morning call to Mooresville police led to two seperate pursuits of stolen cars that also led to crashes.

At 3:48 a.m. Wednesday, the Mooresville officers responded to a call about suspicious activity in the Coddle Creek and Kistler Farm area, according to a press release. Responding officers attempted to stop two suspicious vehicles on Kistler Farm Road.

Both vehicles fled with officers in pursuit. One of the vehicles, a Honda Accord, reportedly crashed in Concord. The suspects fled and were not found. The vehicle was reported stolen.

The second vehicle, a Dodge Journey that also had been reported stolen, crashed on Faith Road near N.C. 115. The driver, Kenneth J. Davis, 18, of Charlotte, was arrested at the scene. The vehicle had been reported stolen from a home in Mooresville a few hours earlier.

Other vehicles were reported stolen during the same timeframe, police said.

Davis was charged with motor vehicle theft, resisting/obstructing a law enforcement officer and speeding to elude arrest. He was transported to the Iredell County Detention Center and given a $75,000 secured bond. More charges may be filed, police said.
