KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Three people were taken into custody after a police pursuit starting in KCK by the Legends ended at 38th and Indiana in KCMO.

The pursuit started at about 5 p.m. due to a misdemeanor theft at a store in the Legends.

The suspected driver took off, almost hitting officers and putting many drivers in danger. At one point, they narrowly squeezed in between several stopped cars.

The pursuit went into KCMO where it ended at 38th and Indiana about 17 minutes later.

Three people were taken into custody shortly after they jumped out of the car and tried to flee on foot.

A manager from the store where the original theft happened came to where the chase ended to see if they could identify the suspects. 

The original crime was misdemeanor theft, but now the suspects could face much more serious charges.

Police on both sides of the state line continue to investigate this. 

No officers were hurt.
