Three people are in custody Thursday evening after leading police on a car chase from North Carolina across the state line that ended in a crash on Interstate 77 in Chester County, police say.
Two females were apprehended at the crash site near mile marker 65 and 66 northbound on I-77, said Robert Sprouse, chief deputy for Chester County Sheriff’s Office.
Chester County and York County sheriff’s office K9 teams tracked and apprehended the third suspect, a male who fled after the crash, about 4 miles from the scene, Sprouse said.
"Everyone involved is in custody," Sprouse said.
Sprouse posted on Facebook that the armed robbery suspects fled from Charlotte.
The male was being transported to the Chester County Detention Center, Sprouse said. He was not sure where the females were headed.
Sprouse did not have names or ages of the suspects at this time.
The chase started near Clanton Road on I-77, The Herald’s news partner WSOCT-TV reported. The driver then left the interstate and drove back roads into Chester County.
The suspect drove back onto I-77 heading north, went off the road and crashed into a patrol car, the station reports.
