A police chase came to an end this afternoon near Eckerd College with four suspects in custody.
It all started just after 2:30 when a suspect stole a purse in St. Pete Beach. Deputies say a man walked up to a car on Isle Drive and pointed a gun at the woman inside, demanding her purse. When she started honking her horn, he grabbed the purse and drove in a blue Honda CRV.
A deputy spotted the CRV on the Pinellas Bayway and tried to stop it, but the CRV sped off into a residential neighborhood near 38th Way South and 50th Avenue.
Deputies say the fleeing vehicle tried to pull a U-turn but it was hit by a pursuing cruiser. Four suspects fled from the car and were captured after a short search.
Their identities had not yet been released.
