THREE RIVERS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Wednesday night Newschannel 3 obtained dash cam video of a frantic chase between Three Rivers police and three robbery suspects with a baby in tow.
Officers stopped the car on Monday, believing it was involved in several thefts in the area.
When the officer asked to turn the vehicle off, the driver sped away.
The suspects are people that police have been looking for for a long time, but when they finally found them, it led to a high speed chase.
Witnesses say the car reached 70 miles per hour on residential streets before crashing into a utility pole at Constantine and Hill.
From there, the driver made a run for it, followed by two passengers, one holding a baby.
Police say the two who ran west climbed over fences, the whole time passing the 6-month-old back and forth between them.
One neighbor even found the child's shoe.
As for the suspects, Antonio and Charles Hearn and William Powell, they are now facing charges of theft, driving under the influence, and fleeing and eluding.
None of the three suspects, nor the baby, were hurt in the crash.
The baby is home with his mother tonight.
