HALES CORNERS — What should have been a routine traffic stop in Hales Corners turned into a vehicle pursuit and crash that resulted in several arrests.

About 8 p.m. Sunday, a Hales Corners officer attempted to stop a vehicle in the 10400 block of West Forest Home Avenue. The car fled the scene, and the pursuit ensued.

As the vehicle exited interstate 94, the driver lost control and crashed, causing several non-life-threatening injuries.

Inside the vehicle, which already had registration and equipment issues, were several new electronic items. The items still had store security devices attached.

All five subjects in the vehicle were taken into custody, and the case is being referred to the District Attorney's Office for criminal charges.
