CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The man accused stealing a semi, and leading police on a chase that stretched for nearly 100 miles faces four counts of attempted murder. Campbell County Police announced the charges against Harold Snow, 28, on Friday.

Police say Snow stole the tractor trailer AC Trucking from Sharonville on August 7 and drove it to Amelia, where he's accused of loading up the truck with more than $80,000 worth of equipment from Keoning Equipment. GPS tracking helped lead police to the semi on I-275.

Police say Snow wouldn't stop for police and the chase went along I-71 into Northern Kentucky, then onto Alexandria Pike in Cold Spring. Police stopped traffic there and say Snow deliberately hit cars, including a cruiser to get away.

Investigators say the attempted murder charges were filed because Snow tried to hit at least four officers during the pursuit. None were badly hurt.

A cell phone and other evidence led police to call Snow a person of interest. They learned he had an open warrant in Lincoln County, Kentucky.

When officials with the Department of Treasury spotted him they coordinated with local law enforcement to have him arrested on that warrant.

Police charged him on Thursday with the attempted murder charges, as well as receiving stolen property, burglary and criminal mischief.
