2 arrested after police chase, rollover

Juveniles are in custody facing charges of car theft and eluding police

Two juveniles are in custody today facing charges of car theft and eluding police after a car chase that started on Arsenal Island this morning.

Rock Island Arsenal Police attempted to stop a red Chevy Silverado near the Fort Armstrong Blockhouse. The driver left at a high rate of speed across the Rock Island Viaduct Bridge and apparently lost control while trying to navigate the turn, rolling the vehicle, which landed on its side.

Police say the vehicle had been reported stolen from Davenport earlier today. Two juvenile males ran from the scene and were caught behind the nearby townhomes. They are both charged with "unlawful possession of vehicle, knowing it to be stolen," according to police. The minors were medically treated as a precaution.

No word yet on the identity of the suspects.
