NOEL, Mo. -- A wild police chase through two states ends with the arrest of a man wanted in three states.

The Joplin Globe reports the chase started shortly after noon Tuesday, when the driver of a car would not pull over for a car stop on Highway 59 near Noel.  The car sped off, with Noel city marshals in pursuit.  They lost sight of the vehicle.  But a short time later, it was found near a campground where a pick up truck was reported stolen. 

According to the Globe, McDonald County Sheriff Mike Hall drove into Oklahoma and spotted the stolen truck at a convenience store, touching off another chase onto a dead-end gravel road.  Hall said the driver rammed the patrol car and fled again, with deputies firing shots at the tires.

Law officers caught back up with the truck after a robbery at a tobacco store on Route O back in Missouri.  After the robbery, the suspect took the clerk's car.  It was spotted in Southwest City, and the driver was finally taken into custody there. 

The Globe reports the suspect, a 46 year old man from Pineville, was wanted in South Carolina, Ohio and Louisiana.
