Police Chase Ends When Vehicle Crashes Into Camden Police Station

On Monday, January 3, 2011, police were surprised when their chase ended up at a familiar location – the Camden police station.

At approximately 1 p.m., police began chasing a maroon minivan near the 8th Street exit of Admiral Wilson Boulevard.

The driver of the stolen van, Alex Butts, 37, of Trenton, failed to stop and led police on a chase through Camden.

As Butts flew through the intersection of Haddon Avenue and Federal Street, he clipped the front of a lunch truck, driven by Anthony , owner of Anthony’s Mobile Catering.

The force of the impact sent the van off course and right up the steps of the embankment outside of the Camden police station.

Butts was taken into custody. Information about his condition was not available.

Anthony was uninjured in the Camden, New Jersey auto accident.
