WARREN COUNTY, Ohio -- Four people are in custody after a police chase that began on Interstate 75 in Warren County early Tuesday.

The incident occurred at about 1:45 a.m. when a Warren County police officer noticed a red Honda CRV on I-75 had stolen license plates, according to WHIO.

The officer tried to stop the driver of the stolen vehicle but he fled from police, according to investigators.

Police say the CRV was stolen from Patterson Boulevard Monday evening.

Police believed the occupants of the vehicle were armed because a weapon was used to steal the car earlier Monday, according to officers.

The pursuit lasted more than 15 minutes and speeds reached 80 mph.

The vehicle stopped on Merlyn Drive in Middletown and two occupants fled on foot while the other two occupants were arrested at the scene, according to dispatch.

A K-9 unit tracked the two subjects who escaped from the vehicle and they were arrested at about 3:30 a.m.

All occupants of the vehicle are believed to be from the Dayton area.
