An Alabama man led officers on a high-speed chase after holding up a dollar store, police say.
D’Iberville police responded to a call of an armed robbery at the Dollar Tree on D’Iberville Boulevard about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday.
Police said victims reported two men armed with handguns entered the store and demanded money. Officers who arrived saw a white vehicle speeding away and tried to stop it. Officers pursued south on Interstate 110 and into Biloxi, then back to to I-110 and onto Interstate 10 eastbound.
The vehicle, a Lexus, moved into Jackson County but overturned near mile-marker 48 just west of the Ocean Springs exit. The driver was taken into custody but the second person is still at large.
