CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- A traffic stop turned into a short police chase near Johnson Avenue NW and 19th Street Saturday evening.

Officers attempted to pull over a vehicle around 7:15 p.m.  Police told KWWL the driver continued driving for about three blocks, then pulled over and ran away. 14 units were dispatched to the location, but officers were not able to catch the driver.

Police do not have a suspect at this point. The vehicle was towed, and investigators are working to contact the owner for more information.
