A suspected thief caused a lot of damage while trying to elude police in a stolen crane.

The crane was taken from a construction yard in Rancho Cordova, California.

Some drivers thought the crane was being escorted by the police cars during the 10-mile chase.

The suspect raised the boom on the crane and police had to fall back as it ripped out power lines, and knocked over at least 10 poles and a traffic signal.

The man finally surrendered and was arrested.
