A home robbery that started in Rogers turned into a high speed chase that closed down I-494 for more than an hour during the Thursday evening commute.
WCCO reports the two men who led police on the chase featuring speeds as high as 100 miles per hour are now under arrest.
A report by the Minnesota State Patrol notes that the chase ended on when the SUV driven by the suspects hit three other vehicles and rolled over.
The Star Tribune's story said the fleeing vehicle "rolled violently enough to pitch its contents of illicit drugs and stolen merchandise onto the highway."
KSTP reports that a passenger was arrested when he attempted to flee the scene of the accident.
Authorities say the suspects threw narcotics out the window before the crash. The Star Tribune reports police suspected the driver may have swallowed a large amount of drugs, possibly methamphetamine, during chase.
During the crash, some of the apparently stolen goods were tossed from the SUV, littering three lanes of the highway with credit cards, cellphones, electronics and tools. Police confiscated 30 to 40 phones, some still in boxes, as well as dozens of credit cards.
The portion of the freeway closed by the incident reopened around 7:30 p.m.
