BROADVIEW, Ill. (WLS) -- A man who allegedly attempted an armed robbery of a Walgreen's store in Broadview, Ill., was taken into custody in Michigan City, Ind., after leading police on a 75 mile chase.
Indiana State Police identified the man as Vincent J. Toliver, 34, of Madison, Wis.
Police say the chase began in Broadview around 8:15 p.m. Friday night after Toliver attempted to rob the Walgreens store at 1600 W. Roosevelt Road at gunpoint. Toliver fled the scene pursued by Broadview police, then continued southbound down I-294 to eastbound I-80 into Indiana, then onto I-94. Broadview Police and Illinois State police pursued Toliver to Indiana, where the chase was turned over to Indiana State Police.
Indiana State Police say Toliver's car stopped near the Michigan City exit of eastbound I-94 but he refused to exit the vehicle. Indiana police and SWAT teams negotiated with Toliver until he was taken into custody after 10 p.m.
Toliver is charged with possession of stolen property and resisting law enforcement. Police also more charges may be added, as the handgun in Toliver's possession is allegedly stolen. He is being held in LaPorte County Jail.
The case remains under investigation.
