PASCO COUNTY, Fla. — Dash cam video captured a Florida Highway Patrol trooper firing a sticky GPS device from his cruiser at a fleeing minivan in Pasco County on March 18. The device helped track the minivan on the Suncoast Parkway, eventually leading to the capture of the driver.

According to an FHP report, the New Port Richey Police were chasing a white minivan and requested the trooper’s assistance because the driver was about to leave their jurisdiction. Police said that fleeing driver had already committed felony aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.

The trooper said because there were other law enforcement vehicles near his cruiser, it wasn’t safe to attempt a P.I.T. maneuver. Instead, the trooper deployed his StarChase system, which fired a GPS device that stuck onto the minivan near the license plate.

“I got the vehicle with StarChase,” the trooper radioed. “I got the mapping program up on my end. So, I can see real time where he’s going.”
