4 arrested after Phoenix police chase armed robbery suspects
PHOENIX (AP) — Four people are in custody after authorities say armed robbery suspects led officers on a long chase in a stolen car across the Phoenix metro area.
Phoenix police say the fourth person was arrested late Tuesday afternoon after briefly barricading himself in a building.
Officers began chasing a car that reportedly had been stolen in an armed robbery and then used in a commercial burglary several weeks ago.
The car swerved through traffic and ran lights before authorities used a stop stick to shred its tires.
The male driver then abandoned that car — leaving behind two people who were detained by police — and allegedly carjacked a pickup truck.
He later ran inside an apartment building and was arrested.
Police haven’t released the names of the suspects yet.
