GARNER, NC (WNCN) — Three youths were arrested late Tuesday after police said they led law enforcement on a high-speed chase across three counties following armed robberies in Raleigh.
Just after 11 p.m., Garner Police said one of their license plate readers had detected a stolen vehicle and alerted officers.
An officer located the vehicle on US 70 and followed it onto Interstate-40 until backup arrived, Garner police said.
The Garner officer turned on his lights and sirens to stop the vehicle on I-40, but the car sped away on the eastbound Interstate.
The suspect vehicle led officers on a chase in Johnston County and onto the US 70 bypass, police said.
The chase continued through Johnston County.
As the suspect vehicle approached the Wayne County line, Princeton police used stop sticks to flatten the suspect vehicle’s tires, police said.
At that point, three people jumped out of the car and ran from the scene of the accident, police said.
All three were quickly captured, with one suffering a minor bite wound from a Garner police K-9.
The juvenile suspects were turned over to Raleigh Police in connection with armed robberies that took place earlier Tuesday.
The vehicle used by the suspects in the chase was reported stolen from Goldsboro, police said.
Garner Police said no accident occurred during the chase and no officers were injured.
The identities of the youths were not released.
This story will be updated as development progresses.
