ROCHESTER, N.Y. – The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office has named the suspect in a stolen truck chase that ended with a crash on Wednesday night as 27-year-old Christopher Webber. He is a parole absconder and a registered sex offender.

On Wednesday at 6:50 p.m., deputies saw a 2020 Dodge Ram on Child Street matching the description of a stolen truck taken in a burglary and recognized the driver as a wanted parole absconder.

The passengers of the SUV were treated at a hospital for minor injuries.

Weber and his passenger, 39-year-old Natasha Holloway, tried to run away, but both were taken into custody.
