State police used a rolling roadblock to stop a man driving a Toyota in Eldersburg at speeds greater than 75 mph yesterday. The driver was arrested and charged with auto theft, theft and multiple traffic offenses, state police said.

Troopers said the chase began at 12: 09 a.m. after the Toyota, which was traveling west on Liberty Road, was clocked by radar at 64 mph in a 45 mph zone and its driver failed to pull over.

Pursuing troopers learned during the five-mile chase that the Toyota with Florida tags had been stolen in Baltimore four hours earlier in a reported car-jacking.

Police used two patrol cruisers to force the Toyota to halt west of Route 97 and arrested the driver, Vernon K. Boulware, 31, of the 4200 block of Ridge Road in Pimlico.

Boulware was being held at the Carroll County Detention Center on $20,000 bail, pending today'sbail hearing, court records show.
