Three people have been arrested after stealing thousands of dollars’ worth of electronics from the Madison Best Buy before leading officers on a chase.

Terreuna Brown, 21, Daimond Hill, 23, and Mario Flynn, 30 – all of Memphis, Tenn. – were taken into custody and are facing multiple charges.

On Thursday afternoon around 5 p.m., the Madison Police Department received a report of shoplifting at the Best Buy on Grandview Boulevard. Responding officers learned that two male subjects had stolen several laptops and other electronic equipment valued at several thousand dollars from the store and had left the parking lot in a white BMW sedan bearing a Texas license plate.

Soon thereafter, a Madison police officer observed a vehicle matching the description traveling southbound on Interstate 55 into Ridgeland city limits. As other officers were approaching the vehicle at the East County Line Road Interstate exit, the vehicle turned suddenly striking the driver’s side front fender of one of the police vehicles which had pulled alongside the suspects.

The vehicle then fled onto the service road, made a U-turn, and proceeded northbound onto Interstate 55. Authorities continued to pursue the suspects’ vehicle. As the suspects approached mile marker 114 at Sowell Road, they swiped the side of a different vehicle causing minor damage to the vehicle without stopping.

The suspects later exited onto Highway 16 where they struck a Toyota Camry. The suspects’ vehicle was disabled due to the crash, prompting two male subjects to flee the scene on foot.

A female subject, later identified as Brown, was taken into custody. The driver of the Camry received non-life-threatening injuries as a result of the crash and was transported to a local hospital.

A perimeter was established around the wooded area where the subjects fled before Hill and Flynn were apprehended early Friday morning. All three are being held at the Madison County Detention Center.
