Bank Robbery Suspect Taken Into Custody After Pursuit

BERKELEY, MO. (KTVI) - A bank robbery suspect was arrested in Berkeley after leading police on a high speed chase Wednesday afternoon.

The chase ended when the suspect crashed into a Lambert Airport maintenance truck.

The suspect and the truck driver were injured.

Both were taken to the hospital.

The truck driver is expected to be fine, but police have not released any detailed information about the suspect.

Steve Dunn lives in Berkeley.

He told Fox 2 the suspect put "innocent lives in danger."

"It is just foolish, and it is not smart to rob banks and run from police," he said.
