St. Ann chase ends in arrest

ST. ANN, Mo. (KSDK) - A high speed police chase ends in arrests. Police say it all started in St. Ann when two men robbed a convenience store -- and it was all caught on camera.

Surveillance video shows a man entering the Circle K off of North Lindbergh in St. Ann. It happened around 11 p.m. Saturday. The man then pointed a gun at the cashier and demanded all the money in the registers. Police say he got away with $250.

St. Louis County police spotted the suspect vehicle thanks to the department's helicopter. The two suspects sent police on a high speed chase on I-70 east.

Police say it all ended about 40 minutes later when the two men ran into a house in St. Louis at Alcott and Theodore. That's when the two men were taken into custody. Now, 50-year-old Barry Griffin of St. Louis is charged with robbery and armed criminal action. The driver has not been charged yet.

"We are sending a strong message if you are going to commit a crime in St. Ann we are going to do everything possible to capture you and to get justice and peace for our victims," St. Ann Chief Aaron Jimenez said.

Both suspects are being held in the St. Ann jail. Griffin has a long criminal history including a probation violation and burglary. The driver was also arrested before for murder, rape, and weapon violations.
