MACOUPIN COUNTY, Ill. (KMOV.com) – Three burglary suspects are being sought after they led police on a chase Tuesday.

Shortly after 11:10 a.m., a homeowner reported his home in the 4300 block of Two Mile Road in Macoupin County had been burglarized by three suspects. The homeowner said he chased two of the suspects on foot until they entered a blue convertible BMW with a black top.

A deputy with the Macoupin County Sheriff’s Department saw the vehicle traveling on US 66 and Wolf Road, at which time they started to pursue it as it continued to Route 138 and towards the interstate exit ramps.

During the pursuit, a deputy stopped the suspect vehicle, but the driver was able to take off again, almost running the deputy over, according to officials.

After leaving the deputy, the suspect vehicle continued to southbound Interstate 55 and officers pursued it towards Interstate 270, where it was able to elude police and enter Missouri.

According to police, the suspect vehicle’s dealer plates were found to be stolen from Laura Buick GMC Inc. in Collinsville.

Officers from Macoupin County, Illinois State Police, Hamel, Troy, Pontoon Beach, Collinsville and Granite City assisted in pursuing the vehicle.

Anyone with information should contact police.
