UPDATE: Thursday, March 12, 2020, 5:25 p.m.

Three people were arrested following a chase that exceeded the speed limit and went over 20 miles, according to police.

William Mitchell Rosser, 23, Krista Reynolds, 28, and Tristin Sandifer, 36, are all charged in connection with the chase; Rosser with theft of a vehicle and evading arrest, Reynolds with evading arrest, and Sandifer on an outstanding warrant.

According to police, an officer noticed a Toyota Rav4 that had been reported stolen, and attempted to initiate a traffic stop, at which point the vehicle attempted to flee and a chase ensued.

Police said the chase went on for more than 20 miles and exceeded the speed limit.

At a point during the chase, police said the vehicle stopped to drop off a suspect in the 1500 block of 13th Street.

The suspect was later identified as Sandifer, who was arrested on an outstanding warrant.

Police said during the chase, a passenger in the stolen vehicle was throwing items out of the window.

According to authorities, police laid down a spike strip on Old Iowa Park Road, which was successful in puncturing the car’s tires.

According to our crew on scene, the vehicle came to a stop after it crashed on the train tracks off of Old Iowa Park Road in the vicinity of City View Drive.

When the car stopped, police said the driver exited the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot. The passenger, later identified as Reynolds, was arrested on scene and charged with evading arrest.

Police eventually caught the driver on foot, who was identified as Rosser, and arrested him on charges of evading arrest with a vehicle and theft of a vehicle (greater than $2,500 but less than $30,000).

Rosser spent nearly a month in jail earlier this year stemming from an evading arrest and theft charge.

According to the affidavit, Rosser was arrested on Jan. 20, 2020 after police said he attempted to flee on a bicycle when they saw him with a police scanner that ended up being stolen.
