A police pursuit that began in Massachusetts Thursday afternoon wound up going through Enfield and ended on the Route 140 bridge, where a pair of suspects were arrested.
Alyssa Lolos, 27, whose last known address was in East Longmeadow, MA, was charged by Enfield police with third-degree larceny by possession, engaging police in pursuit, reckless driving and operating without a license. She was also charged on an Enfield warrant with sixth-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit sixth-degree larceny.
Her passenger, Joseph Deleon, 35, of no certain address, was charged with sixth-degree larceny by possession, and an Enfield warrant charged him with sixth-degeee larceny and conspiracy to commit sixth-degree larceny.
Both were held at the Enfield Police Department in lieu of bonds totaling $10,000 each.
The pursuit began when Agawam police began following a car that had been reported stolen. The chase moved onto Interstate 91 into Connecticut, where Enfield police joined in, Enfield Police Chief Carl Sferrazza said.
The suspects got off the highway at Exit 45 in East Windsor and headed west on Route 140, but they were stopped on the bridge over the Connecticut River, Sferrazza said.
Deleon was found in possession of items reported to have been stolen from a CVS store in Agawam, Lt. Willie Pedemonti said.
The duo is suspected by multiple Massachusetts agencies as being involved in other larcenies, Pedemonti said.
Deleon has an active warrant from the state of Florida for violation of probation, Det. Mike Bailey said.
