SCHENECTADY - A 17-year-old led state police on a chase Saturday evening from Schenectady to Colonie, state police said.

The incident began just after 7 p.m. Saturday when state police attempted to stop a stolen vehicle on Brandywine Avenue in Schenectady, state police said.

The driver refused to stop and troopers gave pursuit, state police said.

The vehicle continued into Colonie and eventually left he roadway on Old Albany Shaker Road in Colonie and the driver fled on foot, state police said. 

A search of the area with K-9s and aircraft then located the suspect and took the teen into custody.

The teen, who was not identified due to age, was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a felony, and second-degree reckless endangerment, a misdemeanor.

The teen was released to appear in court later.

The chase was one of two connected to Schenectady and Colonie in 48 hours. On Monday, a Schenectady man led police on multiple chases from Colonie to Schenectady, Albany and back to Colonie before he was taken into custody, Colonie police said.
