SLIDELL, La. (WVUE) - Four suspects were arrested and charged after a police pursuit led to a crash in Slidell this morning, a spokesperson from the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office said.

The pursuit started in Mississippi and crossed over into St. Tammany Parish, the sheriff’s office said.

Deputies say they responded to a request around 3 a.m. for assistance from the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office in tracking a vehicle they said was used during several burglaries and that it was headed towards the state line.

St. Tammany deputies say they located the vehicle after it crashed into the wood line behind the Fremaux Town Center. When deputies arrived, the four suspects attempted to flee on foot.

St. Tammany and Hancock deputies successfully established a perimeter and apprehended the four suspects.

After the arrests, it was discovered that the suspects had violations in multiple jurisdictions. St. Tammany and Hancock deputies confirmed with the Pass Christian Police Department that items stolen, including firearms, were taken during burglaries from their jurisdiction.

Deputies were also able to confirm that the vehicle they were driving was stolen in Tangipahoa Parish.

While searching the vehicle, deputies located a clear plastic bag containing suspected 10 grams of marijuana and items commonly known as drug paraphernalia.
