Police are looking for a man who stole a box truck full of appliances Tuesday morning, then led authorities on a chase from Akron to Cleveland.

Shortly before 8 a.m., Akron Police say the 24-foot box truck made its first stop of the day at 1901 Marks Avenue in Akron. When the two workers got out of the truck to bring an appliance inside the home, they saw a man wearing a hoodie jump in the truck and drive off. They say the workers left the keys inside the truck while making the delivery.

According to police, the suspect drove around the block and then got onto I-76 westbound to I-77 northbound. Richfield Police released one cruiser's dash cam video of the chase.

Several police agencies were involved in the chase, which was later called off at East 55th Street and Quincy Avenue in Cleveland, due to safety reasons.

Police say several cars were hit on I-77, but no injuries were reported.

The truck is owned by Enterprise Rental and contracted by Real Deal to make deliveries for Best Buy. According to police, the truck contains between $20,000 and $25,000 worth of appliances. 

Anyone with more information on this incident is urged to contact police.
