ST. ANN (KMOV.com) – Three suspects are in custody and a fourth is still on the run after an overnight police chase in north St. Louis County.

The suspects reportedly took about $200 worth of stuff, including food and alcohol, from the Shop ‘N Save on St. Charles Rock Road in St. Ann. After taking the items, the suspects got into a Chevrolet Impala.

When officers spotted the suspects’ vehicle, they attempted to stop it but the driver continued, at which time police began a pursuit. The chase eventually ended on Interstate 170 just before Interstate 270 when the driver of the suspects’ vehicle lost control due to the wet pavement.

When the chase ended, three suspects were quickly taken into custody. The driver of the car ran to a nearby neighborhood. The suspect on the loose is not believed to be a threat to the public.

Police officials told News 4 the car the suspects were inside was reported stolen from St. Louis City.
