Police say a vehicle was stolen from the Gold Strike Casino-hotel in Jean, Nevada on Friday.

Investigators say Nevada Highway Patrol located the vehicle and started to pursue it.
After a chase, the vehicle rolled over near Las Vegas Boulevard and Erie Avenue.
The male suspect then fled on foot.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department assisted NHP in setting up a perimeter, placing spike strips on northbound Las Vegas Boulevard.
The stolen vehicle swerved to avoid the spike strips, but over-corrected, which caused the vehicle to roll over.
The suspect was taken to UMC with non-life-threatening injuries.
