ROGERS, Minn. - A high-speed chase through the western Twin Cities metro area Thursday evening ended in a rollover crash, scattering what police believe to be stolen merchandise.
Two men, the driver from Wisconsin and a passenger from Minnesota, were hospitalized after the crash, said Rogers Police Chief Jeff Beahen.
Beahen said police were called about 6 p.m. to a home in Rogers northwest of Minneapolis that had been been boarded up. Neighbors reported men trying to enter the home.
Police tried to pull over the SUV that left area. Instead, the driver raced down Interstate 94 toward Minneapolis, striking three other vehicles on Interstate 494 in Plymouth before rolling.
As it rolled, Beahen said what is believed to be stolen merchandise was thrown from the vehicle, including iPads, computers, credit cards and at least 30 phones.
Beahen said the driver admitted to ingesting meth during the pursuit and bags of suspected drugs were tossed from the vehicle. Beahen said there were “explosions of white powder” as bags were thrown from the SUV, but not enough of the powder could be gathered for testing.
The men will be charged after they are released from the hospital, Beahen said. No other injuries were reported.
