A short police chase Tuesday ended with an allegedly stolen van driving into the front of church in Benton Harbor. The van was spotted around 6:30 p.m. by its owner's father near the J&B Party Store on Empire Avenue. Police made contact with the suspect and had one cuff on his hand, but he was able to escape. A pursuit ended with the suspect losing control and crashing the vehicle into the front porch of St. Mark Baptist Church at Clay and Pavone Streets. The suspect is expected to face several charges, including auto theft and resisting arrest.
