CONCORD, N.C. (WBTV) - Two people were charged after leading police through three counties and eventually crashing.

According to Concord Police, officers responded to a call on Monday that several cars had been broken into at the Sportscenter in Concord.

Police had a description of the car and were able to get a license plate number.  As police attempted to make a traffic stop, the suspects took off and got on I-85 north towards Salisbury.

Concord Police said that the situation did not meet the requirements of its chase policy, but that due to the volume of traffic on the interstate, they were able to keep the car in sight, and notify the Rowan Sheriff's Office.

Rowan deputies followed the car, and it eventually crashed in Stanly County after passing through Misenheimer on Highway 52.
