A father and son are in custody after they allegedly led police on a wild chase Saturday night.

Investigators say Pennsauken Police officers were pursuing a Dodge Caravan in Philadelphia. The driver of the vehicle, 20-year-old Jacob Allen, and his father, 45-year-old Scott Allen, were both wanted in connection with several burglaries, according to investigators.

During the chase, police say the Caravan struck several police vehicles as well as a Hess terminal.

At one point, investigators say Philadelphia Police officers took over the pursuit as the suspects drove through the streets of Manayunk. The chase finally ended near the intersection of Ridge Avenue and Conarroe Street in Roxborough shortly after 9 p.m. after a pursing officer managed to pin the Caravan against a parking meter.

Police say the father and son were then taken into custody without incident. Investigators say Scott Allen had an active warrant for his arrest out of Woodbury, New Jersey.

Scott Allen was charged with fugitive of justice. Jacob Allen was charged with DUI, fleeing and eluding, and other related offenses.

Investigators also say the father and son will soon face related burglary charges.

Despite the extensive damage to the police vehicles, investigators say no officers were seriously hurt during the chase.
