HOUSTON – Three armed suspects have been arrested after leading Houston police on a high-speed chase Monday afternoon.

Houston police responded to reports of an armed robbery at a Boost Mobile located in the 10000 block of Hammerly around 4:50 p.m.

When police arrived, they spotted a vehicle leaving the cellphone store driving at a high rate of speed. When police tried to stop the vehicle, the suspects refused, leading police on a high-speed chase down US 290.

A few minutes into the chase, HPD Lt. Larry Crowson said the suspects struck a wall on St. Felipe in the 1900 block on the West Loop and attempted to flee on foot.

The first suspect was caught by officers shortly after exiting the vehicle. The second suspect was caught locked in the bathroom of a Berry Hill taco restaurant after customers reported suspicious activity. And the third suspect was caught inside of a shoe store.

Police have not released the identities of the suspects.
