Suspect in 3 States Arrested after Wild Chase
PINEVILLE (AP) - A suspect wanted in three states was captured in southwest Missouri after a chase that included two car thefts, ramming a sheriff's car and robbing a store.
Authorities say the 46-year-old man from Pineville is wanted in South Carolina, Ohio and Louisiana for charges including burglary, assault and theft of weapons.
The Joplin Globe reports the chase began Tuesday near Noel when the driver refused to pull over for a traffic stop. McDonald County authorities pursued him into Oklahoma and then back into Missouri.
The man is suspected of robbing a convenience store in Missouri and stealing the clerk's car. He was finally arrested after Missouri Highway Patrol officers chased him to Southwest City, where he hid behind a home.
He's being held in McDonald County. Charges are pending.
