5 charged after Tuesday’s pursuit in Charlotte

Five men have been charged in connection with a police pursuit Tuesday afternoon that ended in a south Charlotte neighborhood.

The pursuit began when officers spotted a black SUV that was reported by police to have been seen near the scenes of break-ins. The vehicle refused to stop for Charlotte-Mecklenburg officers, and the N.C. Highway Patrol joined the pursuit.

Police say several passengers in the vehicle jumped and ran during various times in the pursuit, which ended in the Colony Acres subdivision off Nations Ford Road.
