IMPD: Suspect crashes stolen truck into house during chase

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A police chase early Tuesday morning ended when a wanted man crashed a stolen pickup truck into a house just south of downtown, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

Just after 12:30 a.m., an IMPD officer spotted 27-year-old Cody Goode speeding down Raymond Street near East Street in a Ford F-150 pickup truck that he stole on Monday.

Court documents say Goode is the suspect in three vehicle thefts within the last week and had six felony warrants out of Marion County.

When the officer tried to pull Goode over, he refused to stop and a chase ensued. Court documents say he is known to “flee from police whenever he has an opportunity.”

Goode rammed an IMPD patrol car during the pursuit and a second police car was damaged on a set of railroad tracks, according to IMPD.

The chase ended when Goode crashed into the porch of a home in the 2100 block of South Pennsylvania Street. That’s just west of the intersection of Madison Avenue and Raymond Street.

“Cody Goode said that he was sorry multiple times while still sitting in the truck,” court documents say. “Mr. Goode was ordered out of the vehicle and placed into custody without further incident.”

Goode was transported to the Community Justice Campus following his arrest.

No officers or civilians were injured during the pursuit.
