MARSHALL COUNTY, Ala. - Three women and one man were taken into custody early Tuesday evening at a motel in Guntersville in connection with a stolen car chase earlier that morning.
Two other men were arrested after leading police on a chase that started in Guntersville. The chase ended on Main Street in Arab. Guntersville Police say that when they ran the tags, the car came up stolen from Houston County, Ga.
At some points, the vehicle was going up to 100 miles-per-hour. The chase ended when the SUV side swept a box truck near the intersection of Guntersville Road and Main Street.
The car was stopped at Arab City Center. Bennie Acreman's store, Main Street Produce, had a front-row view.
"Well, I was looking out the window and I saw this car go over the curb and about 15 or 20 cop cars chasing them," recalled Acreman.
Police say there were two firearms in the vehicle, and during the chase, the passenger called 9-1-1 saying that the driver had a gun to his head and threatened to shoot if the chase continued.
The driver surrendered the gun and there were no injuries reported though both suspects were found with drugs in their system and taken to the hospital. Officials say they found stolen firearms and jewelry in the SUV connected with multiple burglaries in Houston County.
Officials were then able to find property stolen at a motel along with four people who were connected to the incident. Officials will be releasing officials charges and names tomorrow.
