OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Two suspects are behind bars after leading Oklahoma City police on a chase through the city’s southwest side.
Officials say the chase started as an auto-burglary call near SW 44th and Santa Fe Ave.
Police tried to pull the driver of the stolen car over but they sped off, leading police on a chase.
The chase ended when the two suspects plowed through the front doors of a Neighborhood Market Walmart near SW 59th and Penn.
“I mean he just- 60 MPH… boom! Right through the door. Glass just going everywhere,” said employee Austin Davis.
Oklahoma City Police say there were two suspects in the car, and Davis says they tried to get away even after crashing into the store.
“I saw that one that tried to grab me. Now I did see one officer go down my aisle so I knew there was a second one,” said Davis.
Police were able to arrest both suspects and luckily no one inside the store was injured.
“What can you say? Something like that happen, we’re lucky somebody didn’t get run over. Somebody could’ve died like that,” Davis said.
The entrance is now blocked off.
Employees worked through the morning to get the glass and other damage cleaned up.
“He messed up the Christmas tree, he messed up a door, a cooler door and then all the other stuff over there he just knocked it down,” said Davis.
Davis says he’s just glad everybody he works with was able to walk away unharmed.
“I’m just glad everybody’s safe man! Now they’re gonna pay a lot of thousands of dollars on that door,” said Davis.
Suspect names have not yet been released.
