HOUSTON – Four people were arrested Thursday after officers chased a vehicle that is believed to have been used in multiple robberies during the past several days, police said.

The chase started about 11:15 p.m., when the driver of a car refused to stop.

Police said officers pursued the vehicle around southeast Houston near Cullen Boulevard before the driver turned onto Briscoe Street, which is a dead end. The car crashed into a small brick structure.

Four people jumped out of the car and tried to run from the scene, police said. Three of them were arrested quickly, and the fourth was arrested a short time later, police said.

All four face multiple charges, police said.
