  • A pursuit of a stolen vehicle in Joplin ended in Neosho early Tuesday morning, according to a detective with the Newton County Sheriff's Department.
    Lt. Rick Geller said near midnight Monday, the department picked up the chase of a stolen 2004 Chevrolet Impala on Interstate 49.
    "Sometime [during the pursuit], the highway patrol 'spiked' them and they were driving on at least one rim," Geller said. "They went all the way down I-49, back up again, then down, then through Neosho and then they finally ended up about a block from the police department."
    The Missouri State Highway Patrol put down spike strips to flatten the tires of the suspects' vehicle.
    Geller said four people were taken into custody, but as the report was not finished as of Tuesday afternoon, he said he didn't know their names, ages or sex.
