On Jan. 4, police received a report of a breaking and entering and a description of the suspects and their vehicle. Police found the vehicle and followed it as it exited Interstate 485 in Pineville, traveling toward Johnston Road on Pineville-Matthews Road.

An officer attempted to stop the car, police said, and a brief chase ensued until the suspects’ vehicle collided with another vehicle near a gas station at the corner of Pineville-Matthews and Carmel roads. The suspects’ vehicle continued to flee, police said, and struck another car in the intersection of Pineville-Matthews and Carmel roads. No one was seriously injured in the collisions, police said.

After the second collision, three suspects ran from the vehicle, police said.

Two men, Dandre Lamar Morrison and Damal Digsby, both 22, were taken into custody after a brief foot chase and face several charges in connection to the chase, including felony residential breaking and entering and resisting arrest.
