2 officers injured in arrest of 3 for car theft in St. Charles County


O’FALLON, Mo. – Three auto theft suspects are in custody Thursday morning and two officers are being treated for injuries

This all started at about 2 a.m. when a license plate reader in O’Fallon, Missouri spotted a pickup truck that was stolen in Wentzville a few days ago.

Officers from a car theft task force comprised of St. Charles County officers and the Missouri State Highway Patrol spotted three people approaching that truck in a parking lot. When they moved in, the three suspects ran. After a short foot chase, two were arrested. The third remained on the run until about 6:15 a.m.

Police told FOX 2 that two officers were injured during the course of this incident. They are being treated at a hospital.

FOX 2’s Nissan Rogue Runner reporter Jason Maxwell was at the scene.
