ELWREN, Ind. (WISH) — A robbery suspect is in custody after leading the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department on a chase early Saturday morning.
The Seymour Police Department notified the sheriff’s department with suspect information just before 1 a.m. and a deputy located the vehicle matching the description driving eastbound on State Road 45 near Harmony Road, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department.
Investigators said the suspect refused to stop when authorities tried to conduct a traffic stop.
The chase ended near the intersection of County Line Road onto Elwren Road, about a mile after the department laid down spike strips which deflated the suspect’s two front tires. The suspect then led officers on a foot pursuit, but was eventually taken into custody, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department.
An item believed to be connected to the Seymour robbery case was found inside the suspect’s vehicle.
The suspect was booked into the Monroe County Correctional Center on charges of operating while intoxicated, possession of a handgun without a license, reckless driving and two counts of resisting law enforcement.
The identity of the suspect is unknown.
The department posted a video of the dash cam footage from the pursuit on their official Facebook page.
