The LaGrange Police Department contacted the Sandy Springs Police Department (SSPD) about a vehicle from Sandy Springs that was connected to an entering auto in LaGrange earlier in the day, according to an SSPD Facebook post.

Two of the occupants fled on foot while the other two stayed in the SUV. The two who fled were found hiding inside a nearby business and were taken into custody. The two individuals still in the vehicle were taken into custody after a brief standoff.

All four individuals were arrested. Charges included: fleeing to elude: reckless driving; driving on the wrong side of the road; suspended license; possession of tools for the commission of a crime; red light violation; theft by receiving stolen property, obstruction; possession of marijuana.

The driver of the SUV was wanted on charges out of three states with five total charges, according to the SSPD.
