Posted: Updated:

(KALB News Channel 5) - On Thursday, July 3, at 9:00 p.m., the Pineville Police Department stopped a 2012 Dodge Charger in the 500 block of Bragg Street. When the officer went to contact the occupants all three fled from the vehicle on foot.

PPD learned that the vehicle had earlier been stolen from Lake Charles. One of the passengers, Zachary Gauthier, 17, of Lake Charles, was located walking down Smith Street. He was arrested for Resisting an Officer by Flight and Open Container violation.

During the investigation and search for the other two occupants of the stolen vehicle the department received a report of another stolen vehicle from Cummings Street, which is approximately ½ mile from the traffic stop location.

The vehicle taken from Cummings Street was recovered on River Road in Avoyelles Parish within an hour of the report. A black male juvenile from Lake Charles was arrested for the theft of the vehicle, according to PPD.

One suspect remains at large and has been identified as Joseph Kirklin, 19, of Lake Charles.
