Arrested

Four juveniles were arrested Wednesday after a chase that went from Southaven’s Tanger Outlets Mall into Memphis.

According to Southaven Police, three suspect vehicles were reportedly throwing items at shoppers at the Tanger Outlets Wednesday and officers were called to deal with the complaint.

At the same time, police said another call came in about a suspected robbery not involving a weapon at the Towne Center shopping area on Southcrest Parkway that involved the same three vehicles.

The suspects were spotted by officers who tried to stop them, but the attempt started a chase from the Southcrest and Goodman Road area.

That chase led into Memphis, but not before one the three vehicles involved, a red Toyota truck, was disabled with stop sticks.

The two other vehicles, including a white Dodge truck, escaped and crossed over the state line into Tennessee.

They eventually were stopped in the area of Getwell Road and Shelby Drive and were arrested by Memphis Police.

The group of four now face charges of vehicle theft in Memphis and robbery in DeSoto County.
