Officers received a report that several suspects had entered the Dicks, grabbed armfuls of merchandise, and fled in a vehicle. An LPPD officer was able to locate the vehicle fleeing the area. The officer attempted to conduct a vehicle stop in the township, but the driver refused to yield and fled onto the highway. Officers pursued the vehicle into Cumberland County where it was subsequently stopped and the involved parties were arrested. All arrestees were transported to the Dauphin County Booking Center where they were arraigned on the following charges.
