Accidental chase after a robbery in Bienne

During the night from Sunday to Monday, shortly before 2:40 a.m., a break-in was committed in a business on rue de la Gare, in Bienne. If, when the Bernese police arrived, the thieves had already left the scene, a patrol noticed a suspicious vehicle shortly after on the A16 motorway. Upon seeing the police, near the Pierre Pertuis tunnel, the car fled in the direction of Moutier.

A crazy chase then began, the patrol sometimes losing sight of its target, due to the very high speeds reached. At this rate, what had to happen happened. The fleeing vehicle hit a guardrail. With one exception, all the passengers in the vehicle continued to flee on foot, leaving behind a member of the team who was injured during the accident. With weapons in hand, the police apprehended the injured man near the damaged car. He was then placed under provisional arrest. On the other hand, despite the research undertaken, his accomplices are still at large.

Loot from the theft was found in the vehicle of the alleged perpetrators. And, during the escape, the police observed several speeding violations and other traffic violations. Finally, the A16 towards Moutier had to be closed to traffic for several hours due to the accident.
