GREENFIELD, Wis. — Video captured police in Wisconsin pulling off a successful PIT maneuver in order to arrest four men suspected of stealing over $1 million worth of merchandise from stores in three different states, Fox 6 News reports

According to the report, officers responded to a burglary alarm at a local Best Buy store on Sept. 8 and pursued a van leaving the back of the building without its headlights on. 

Dash camera footage released by the Greenfield Police Department shows an officer performing a PIT maneuver that sent the suspects’ white van sliding across the interstate and into a concrete median. The van rolled over once and was surrounded by police.  

Assistant Police Chief David Patrick told reporters during a press conference he believes the four men are part of a group connected to over 25 burglaries in as many as three states.
