(KMOV.com) -- A high speed chase turned into a foot pursuit after police chased a suspect from Festus, Missouri into DeSoto.

According to officials, a Festus officer pulled over a white SUV and discovered the driver was wanted for an armed robbery in Jefferson County.  The male suspect took off and led authorities on a chase from Festus and into DeSoto.  Along the way, the subject slowed down and let a female passenger out of the vehicle.

The suspect eventually stopped the vehicle in the 4000 block of Fischer in DeSoto, Missouri.  From there, the suspect took off on foot. 

The female subject is in custody and officials are uncertain if she will be charged.  Officers are still searching for the male suspect.
