The nearly hour-long chase has ended at West 69th Street and Union Avenue in Shreveport when the vehicle lost control and crashed into a power line pole causing a Minden police unit to slam into the back of the vehicle.

During the chase, the third suspect jumped out of the car somewhere in Shreveport’s Highland neighborhood, according to an officer with Shreveport police.

While searching through the vehicle, Minden police found a gun inside.

It all started when the unidentified suspects reportedly stole merchandise at the Walmart on Homer Road in Minden around 10:30 a.m., according to the Minden Police Department.

The Walmart manager said they ran out of the store with multiple $200 hoverboards, which could mount into thousands of dollars.

Multiple law enforcement agencies chased the white Chevy Impala from Minden I-20 westbound all the way to Shreveport.

Louisiana state troopers reportedly tried to use stop sticks in order to stop the vehicle at mile marker 28.

One of the suspected passengers in the car was taken to the hospital and is expected to be OK
The two women involved in the chase will be charged with felony flight.

Minden police suspended their search for the third suspect involved in the incident hours after the chase ended.

Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office, Shreveport Police Department and Louisiana State Police were assisting MPD in the chase.
