A Joplin pursuit ends with five wrecked vehicles, including one stolen vehicle, and two suspects in custody.

On June 7th, around 10:07 p.m., two Joplin detectives were called to the 200 block of North Walnut. According to the Joplin Police Department, a white Dodge Pickup Truck was approaching the officers when it stopped in the roadway, pulled a U-turn and drove away heading north. Detectives caught up to the truck at Perkins and Mina and tried to stop it for no license plate but the truck didn't stop. Authorities say they didn't pursue the truck because it was traveling at a high rate of speed.

A few minutes later, the detectives saw the truck parking at the West 7th Street Wal-Mart. A male and female were getting out of the truck and started walking away, but they saw a police car approaching and ran back to the truck and sped away.

Authorities followed them on 7th Street and said the driver was hitting curbs and committing lane and speed violations. The chase continued east on 7th to Gray, north on Gray, West on 5th, and then south on Porter.

Around 10:11 p.m., only four minutes after police first spotted the white Dodge Pickup Truck, the suspect vehicle ran a stop sign and hit a Ford F-150 with two people inside. The suspect vehicle then lost control and hit three parked vehicles in the 700 block of South Porter: a 2017 Kia, a 2018 Kia Rio and a 2017 Kia Forte.

The suspect truck ended up on its side in the roadway. The male driver and female passenger were arrested.

Authorities discovered that the pickup truck the suspect was driving, a 2016 Dodge Ram 1500, was reported stolen from Roper Kia on June 5th.

The male driver was arrested for felony resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance (meth), property damage, second degree assault and tampering with a stolen vehicle. KOAM and FOX 14 are waiting for charges to be filed by the Jasper County Prosecutor's Office before including his name.

The passenger, 38-year-old Tamarine Gustaveson of Joplin, was arrested for several Joplin, Webb City and felony out of state warrants (charges already filed) along with resisting, second degree tampering with a stolen vehicle and property damage.

Gustaveson was treated and released at a local hospital due to injuries from the crash before being taken to the Joplin City Jail.
