Three Arrested After Webster Burglary, Car Chase
WEBSTER GROVES, Mo (KMOX)-Detectives are trying to determine if the three men arrested after a chase from Webster Groves into St. Louis this morning are responsible for a series of recent home break-ins in St. Louis County.
Webster Groves Police Captain Stephan Spear says he three were interrupted burglarizing a home in the 500 block of Locust Court Friday morning, moments after a similar break-in involving similar suspects was reported in nearby Glendale.
Spear says as officers raced to the scene, they passed the suspects’ vehicle fleeing the scene, “The suspect driver refused to yield. At least on two occasions the driver of the suspect vehicle attempted to strike our Webster cars.”
The pursuit sped down I-44 into St. Louis. The suspects abandoned their vehicle at Rutger and Ohio. St. Louis Police arrested them at a nearby apartment building.
Spear says Webster Groves and neighboring agencies have had some similar break-ins, “With what we have currently we believe, it’s enough for us to pursue that line of investigation that these suspects were involved in more than just today’s events.”
There were no injuries during today’s chase.
