Two people were taken into custody early Monday morning by Mesquite police after leading officers on a chase into Dallas.
Mesquite police said an officer spotted multiple people sitting inside a parked 2001 black Chevrolet Tahoe, one of whom was wearing a mask over his face.
When the driver saw the officer, he sped out of the parking lot. The officer tried to get the driver to pull over, but he refused and led the officer into Dallas.
The driver stopped near Lemmon Avenue and Peak Street and three people jumped from the vehicle and ran on foot. Two of those who were inside the vehicle were taken into custody -- the driver escaped.
"It is very likely that the suspects were planning to do a robbery in the parking lot," police said.
Police have not released the names of the two taken into custody, citing the ongoing investigation.
