WARREN (WWJ) – Six men who allegedly broke into a CVS Pharmacy in Warren and stole the ATM before leading a police chase that ended in a crash on I-94 could end up spending the rest of their lives in prison.
The men — 22-year-old Demarcus Catlin, 22-year-old Kendall Kelly, 35-year-old Frank Anderson, 34-year-old Santos Anderson, 21-year-old Daryl Jackson and 28-year-old Brandon Richards — were arraigned Friday in Warren.
Police say the group smashed a full-size van into the CVS Pharmacy on 9 Mile, Schoenherr Road, just before 5 a.m. Thursday and stole the store’s ATM. Officers responded to the scene and a slow-speed chase ensued.
Police say the chase ended on eastbound I-94 just past the I-75 interchange when the van’s driver slammed into a guard rail and damaged a state police cruiser. No one was injured.
The ATM fell out of the suspects’ van during the chase and was recovered, police said.
The six men were arrested after fleeing the scene of the crash on foot.
