Deputies said a stolen vehicle believed to be connected to several thefts early Tuesday morning was involved in a chase through Greenville County.

The vehicle was believed to be used in several convenience store thefts on the east side of town when Greenville County deputies tried to pull the vehicle over, it failed stop, according to deputies.

Three warrants dated Dec. 27 said the suspect stole multiple packs of Bud Light beer from three different stores in Greenville County prior to the pursuit that took place Tuesday morning. The warrant said the beers were located in the stolen vehicle after Stroble was arrested Tuesday.

Deputies said around 12:57 a.m. they tried to stop the vehicle, but the driver refused to shop and a brief pursuit ensued. The chase lasted for several minutes around the areas of Interstate 85, Highway 291, Mauldin Road and White Horse Road before deputies stopped chase.

The Highway Patrol later located the vehicle, leading to another chase before the suspect was involved in a crash, according to deputies.

Deputies said the suspect was Cory Lamont Stroble, 36, who then fled on foot, and they were able to locate and arrest him on active warrants with the Sheriff's Office. 

The arrest warrants list some of the charges against Stroble include forgery less than $10,000 when he used a check at a local BB&T bank belonging to someone else's account; grand larceny in connection with a Nissan Altima stolen in October; multiple shoplifting charges dating back to November; possession of a stolen vehicle described as a Honda Passport.

One of the warrants dated Dec. 27 was for grand larceny greater than $10,000 and said Stroble got into a deputy's patrol vehicle and tried to take possession of the car without permission.
