A high-speed chase this morning in Bozeman resulted in the arrest of one of the suspects of a home robbery earlier this week.
According to law enforcement, a man and woman were arrested at approximately 11 a.m. after crashing a stolen car. The man had been recognized in Home Depot from footage KBZK had broadcast on Tuesday and a witness called law enforcement.
Lt. Arlyn Greydanus arrived at the store and observed the couple get into a vehicle which had been stolen in Kansas. When backup arrived they ordered the pair out of the car, but they resisted and drove off, crossing N. 19th Ave. The car crashed at a dead end behind Lowe's, the pair fled on foot and tried hiding in bushes where they were found by law enforcement and taken into custody.
The man has been positively identified as one of the suspects in a residential robbery that occurred in the morning of Tuesday, Oct. 15.
In that incident, a credit card that was stolen in the burglary was later used in Belgrade at two gas stations by a man and woman who were photographed by surveillance cameras.
Officials say they are not sure if the woman who was driving the car during today's chase is the same woman shown in the surveillance photos.
Charges are pending against the pair, who are both in custody at the Gallatin County Detention Center. Authorities suspect narcotics may be involved in the case.
