GLEN CARBON, Ill. ( - A police pursuit ended in the arrest of three men in Glen Carbon late Monday night after the men reportedly robbed a Walgreens store at gunpoint.

After the alleged robbery, suspects fled west on I-270 chased by Glen Carbon police, then sped down southbound Illinois Route 3, according to Illinois State Police Spokesman Calvin Dye Jr.

Brooklyn and Illinois State Police assisted in the pursuit, which ended in the suspects crashing their Chevy Impala into another vehicle near the entrance to the McKinley Bridge.

The suspects then tried to run away on foot. Two of the three men were captured quickly and the third suspect was caught approximately 45 minutes later when a search dog found and bit him.

Traffic on both sides of the McKinley Bridge was stopped during the police pursuit and search for the third suspect.

The identities of the suspects have not yet been released because charges are still pending.
