Dutch use F-16s to pursue criminal suspect

Talk about overkill. The Dutch air force says two of its F-16 jet fighters tried to help police chase a criminal suspect.



Amsterdam: Talk about overkill. The Dutch air
force says two of its F-16 jet fighters tried to help police
chase a criminal suspect.

Spokesman Olav Spanjer says the jets were about to leave
Volkel airbase on a training mission kast evening when they
heard local police had requested a military jeep to chase a
suspect over soggy terrain.

The pilots volunteered to help search using their infrared
cameras.

Spanjer conceded today, "It was kind of a long-shot."
The suspect was in a car with stolen license plates that
sped away when police tried to pull it over.

After an exchange of gunfire, the car crashed into a canal
and the man ran away across a field.

In the end, a tip from a suspicious neighbor, and not a
high-tech jet, led police to the suspect.
