Suspected Robbers Caught After Televised Police Chase

CASEYVILLE, Ill. (KMOX) –  They tried to run but couldn’t hide from the eye in the sky.

Now two robbery suspects are in custody in the Metro East.

Police say it started early Monday morning with the hold-up of a pair of gas stations in Caseyville.

Then around 7:45 a.m., in a chase that was captured on live TV, police located the suspects in a red pickup bouncing over open fields in a frantic effort to get away.

But with police and television copters tracking their every move from overhead, the two men stumbled out of the truck and tried to run away.

Both were quickly tracked down and arrested.

We’re still waiting to her details of the robberies from police.
