ST. LOUIS – A suspect is in custody after leading police on a pursuit Sunday night. It started around 8:30 p.m. when officers tried to stop the vehicle for a traffic violation along Illinois Route 3.
The chase stretched into Missouri then back into Illinois where the vehicle’s tires were shredded by stop sticks. That tactic didn’t stop the driver, who was able to cross back into Missouri.
The chase came to an end in north St. Louis at I-70 and Salisbury.
The driver was arrested.
