Jefferson City Police make four arrests Tuesday afternoon, after an alleged theft and high-speed chase.
A department spokesperson says officers on Highway 50 tried pulling over the getaway car in a $3,000 robbery that had just happened at a nearby Dillard’s at about 3:21 p.m.
The driver of that car allegedly drove away, eventually crossing the Missouri River Bridge and getting onto Highway 54 and into Callaway County. The car hit spike strips at Fulton’s city limits and came to a stop.
Police arrested the four men from East St. Louis inside the car. They’re currently in jail, and police say they’re looking into whether the group was involved in other nearby thefts as well.
