Driver on the loose after late-night chase with Nampa Police

NAMPA, Idaho (KBOI) -- A driver who led Nampa Police on a chase just after midnight is on the loose.

Nampa PD says an officer attempted to stop the driver of a Hyundai Elantra on Garrity Boulevard near Flamingo at about 12:10 a.m.

The suspect sped from the traffic stop, officials say, went on Interstate-84 and eventually made his way toward Birch Lane. The driver, identified as 29-year-old Vincent Prieto of Nampa, drove his vehicle into a grassy area near a subdivision and ditched his vehicle at the end of Rainbow Place. Prieto ran away from the vehicle into several backyards.

He hasn't been seen since.

Prieto has warrants for his arrest for theft, trespassing, resisting arrest and a traffic violation.

Anyone with information about Prieto's location is asked to call 343-COPS.
