PHOENIX--Phoenix police scoured a Phoenix hotel Wednesday night searching for a suspect who led DPS officers on a high speed chase on a stolen motorcycle.

DPS officers spotted the man speeding on the southbound I-17 and followed him to the Sheraton Crescent Hotel on 21st avenue and Dunlap.

Police say the suspect ditched the motorcycle and took off on foot.

Officers searched the hotel perimeter and an adjacent parking structure where they believed him to be hiding, but did not locate him.

Police determined the motorcycle was reported stolen in Phoenix three days ago.

Hotel guests were told to stay in their rooms or outside, but to stay away from the parking structure.

Officers called off the search of the area around the hotel around 9:30pm.
