Authorities say a high-speed chase ended near the Chatham County border in Wake County Sunday morning when a trooper did a 'pit maneuver' ?tapping the van's back bumper- to make it spin and stop. Raleigh Police officers spotted the stolen van around 10:00 a.m. Sunday and asked The Highway Patrol to assist in the pursuit.

A DOT camera on I-440 captured several police cars chasing the white mini-van down the highway.

Authorities say the chase began in Raleigh, the mini-van went onto the Beltline and then on U.S. 1 before heading on U.S. Highway 64 West towards Chatham County.

The chase ended on U.S. 64, at 2 Pond Lane, inside Wake County.

The driver as Stephen Wallace, 51, was wanted on other felony charges.

Investigators say Wallace listed his home as Raleigh, but they believe he may have been living out of the stolen Chrysler mini-van.
