Strategic planning and vehicle anti-theft technology worked together to help Colorado Springs police recover a stolen car, although no suspects were arrested.

Police were dispatched to the 1800 block of Seclusion Point, in northeast Colorado Springs, to investigate a vehicle theft. The owner of a 2006 Cadillac STS had let a female acquaintance borrow the car and while in her possession, the Cadillac was stolen by a male friend in the early Tuesday morning hours.

Outfitted with On-Star, the Cadillac was tracked down to the area of 6 El Paso Blvd., around 10:50 p.m. Wednesday. Several officers contacted the motor vehicle theft task force as they received updates from On-Star, letting them know the car had moved to a parking lot in the area of 1100 S. Chelton Rd.

At 11:27 p.m. officers tried to contact the Cadillac's driver, but were instead taken on a short car chase, which they ended because of the car thief's erratic driving behavior, police said.

A follow-up with On-Star revealed the car was parked in the area of 2400 E. Monument St. Several officers, including a K-9 Unit, located the Cadillac and tried to apprehend several suspects when they returned to the car, but they eluded police.
