Two girls are in custody for their connection to an armed robbery following a vehicle chase Tuesday night.

There had been a report by Lansing Township regarding a stolen vehicle Monday night.

The vehicle had later been identified on Tuesday when a man informed the police that two people had robbed him at gunpoint and left in an orange SUV. The description of the SUV aligned in both reports.  

According to the Lansing State Journal, ELPD later located the vehicle in the parking lot at the Frandor Burger King at 3121 E Saginaw St. in Lansing. Officers were then able to trace and identify the two individuals inside the fast food chain who fit the description of the suspects involved in the earlier robbery.

The two suspects escaped the parking lot despite attempts by the Lansing Police Department and ELPD officers on scene. The vehicle hit one of the patrol cars as it was escaping, ELPD Capt. Chad Pride said to the LSJ.

The individuals crashed near Howard Avenue moments later and the officers arrested them. Nobody was injured during the incident.
