(KMOV.com) – Four suspects are in custody after they allegedly burglarized a north St. Louis County home, then led police on two separate chases Wednesday afternoon.
According to police, a woman and her granddaughter found four people burglarizing her home in the 2400 block of Center Drive in Jennings.
Police say two of the suspects fled the scene and were later arrested in the same area. The other two led authorities on a chase that ended near a series of lakes near Fairmont City, Ill.
Those suspects fled the vehicle on foot near Interstate 70 and Highway 111. They jumped into into a nearby body of water and tried swimming from authorities before they were both arrested on the banks.
Authorities say they found several pounds of marijuana in the suspects' vehicle.
