Columbus Police say the incident occurred around 1:30 pm on February 6th. They say a royal blue 2008 Chrysler Sebring convertible was stolen from the parking lot of a recreation center on Benning Drive. The vehicle was then spotted in the area of Veterans Pkwy and 5th Avenue, leaving the Fuel Tech gas station, but fled from officers towards Phenix City.
