Robbery suspect flees burning vehicle in cemetery following police chase

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- A video rental store was robbed leading to a high speed chase from Mishawaka to Granger late Thursday night.

It happened at 10:43 at the Family Video on Bittersweet Road.

A clerk at the Route 66 gas station on State Road 23 tells ABC57 News that the driver sped through the side road after vacating the store with their lights off to hide from police.

Dispatch said around 11 p.m., the suspect crashed his vehicle at the Granger Cemetery near State Road 23 and Main Street causing the car to go up in flames.

The suspect then fled the burning vehicle on foot, but was later caught and taken into police custody.
