Pittsburgh Bureau of Police officers attempted to stop a stolen vehicle near the intersection of West Liberty and Pioneer avenues around 7:05 a.m.
Two males in the vehicle jumped out and ran into a wooded area near the South Busway. Police set up a perimeter and searched the area with the assistance of a K-9.
Around 9:30 a.m., police called off the search because the K-9 was exhausted, the area had been thoroughly searched and investigators believe evidence will lead to the quick arrest of the suspects.
The vehicle, which was stolen out of Zone 3, was recovered. No one was injured in the search.
Pittsburgh Police thank our partner law enforcement agencies for assisting in the search, including Port Authority Police and the Allegheny County Sheriff's Department.
