Accused shoplifters lead police on chase from Mishawaka to state line


Late Friday afternoon, police from several departments were called into action to try to nab a pair of shoplifters.

Police tell WSBT two people shoplifted at Meijer on Grape Rd. in Mishawaka.

Police tried to pull them over, but the suspects sped off.

A chase involving the suspects' pickup truck then led officers near the state line.

The driver was nabbed and taken to the Cass County Jail, while the passenger in the car was still on the loose.

Police set up a perimeter along Ironwood Rd. near the state line to search for the second suspect.

Mishawaka police are leading the investigation, while the Cass County and St. Joseph County Sheriff's Departments are helping.
