2 Suspects Arrested After Wild High-Speed Chase Ends At Metro Mall
OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City Police arrested two suspects Monday after a high-speed chase that spanned two counties, reached speeds beyond 100 mph and ended at a metro mall.
Myron Cortez Watson, 36, will be booked on complaints of aggravated eluding and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, according to a police spokesperson. He is accused of leading authorities on a pursuit that moved through Oklahoma City, the town of Cashion and then into Edmond, eventually ending at Quail Springs Mall.
The pursuit started at about 2:40 p.m., police said, near South Bypass Terrace and Southwest 59th Street when officers determined that the dark blue Dodge Charger had been reported stolen from The Village.
Oklahoma City Police terminated the chase, as Jim Gardner & Bob Mills SkyNews 9 and OCPD's Air One continued to fly over the scene. The chase spanned through Oklahoma and Logan counties.
Police tried using stop sticks to end the pursuit, but were unsuccessful.
After about an hour long chase, Watson pulled into the Quail Springs Mall parking lot and parked in front of the Von Maur department store. He ran inside the store and one female suspect, who was in the passenger seat, surrendered in front of the mall doors. The female suspect was then taken into custody.
Police said after a search through the mall, Watson was arrested. The female suspect has not been identified at this time. No injuries were reported.
