Last evening (8/3) at approximately 5:19 pm Harrisonville officers were called to the AT&T store located at 303 South Commercial for a reported armed robbery that had just occurred.
Shortly after officers arrived on scene a description of the suspects as well as the suspect vehicle was obtained and shared with other local law enforcement agencies. A short time later a Deputy with the Cass County Sheriff’s Office spotted the suspect vehicle travelling north on I-49 near Peculiar.
The Deputy tried to stop the vehicle and the suspects fled north at a high rate of speed. The vehicle eventually stopped in Belton near the intersection of 163rd Street and I-49. The three suspects from the vehicle fled on foot and were taken into custody a short time later by the Deputies and officers from the Belton Police Department. There were no injuries reported by officers during this incident. One of the suspects was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries and was treated and released.
At this time we feel that all of the suspects from this incident are in custody and are currently being held in the Cass County Jail. Formal charges will be presented to the Cass County Prosecuting Attorney today for review.
The HPD would like to thank the Cass County Sheriff’s Office as well as the Belton Police Department for their outstanding assistance provided with this case.
