Five stolen Chevrolet Camaros were recovered and nine people were arrested, police said. They're now face multiple charges including fleeing police and concealing a stolen vehicle.
State police put out a BOL notice around 1 a.m. Monday for agencies in and around Metro Detroit and Lansing after vehicle thefts were reported on I-96.
Michigan State Police eventually located five of the stolen vehicles, observing them traveling at a high rate of speed.
After police attempted a traffic stop, the vehicles failed to stop, prompting the chase.
According to a Twitter post from police, the stolen vehicles eventually separated into two groups, consisting of two to four cars each. Multiple agencies pursued both groups while they traveled eastbound on I-96 through Ingham, Livingston and Oakland Counties.
At one point during the chase, police utilized stop sticks to disable the vehicles.
One of the groups being pursued by police crashed near Kensington Road and the suspects fled on foot.
