CHESTER CITY, Pa. (YC) — What started off as a drug deal ended in a movie-like pursuit, police told YC.

Just after 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Chester City Police received a 911 call for the report of illegal drug sales in the parking lot of Dollar Magic, located on the 2200 block of Edgemont Avenue.

As the officers arrived, they noticed a gray Nissan leaving the area, failing to use their turn signal.

Officers initially pulled the vehicle over on the 2000 block of Providence Avenue.
