Two teenagers and a woman were charged with trying to steal a car in Belleville and leading police on a chase Saturday.

According to Belleville Police, three of the six possible suspects who led police on a multi-city chase were arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary. Those three are:

  • Isiah Harvey, 19, from Florissant

  • Keves Tyler, 19, from Lithonia, Georgia

  • Dashia Tillman, 21, listed as homless

Police responded to a call at 11:20 p.m. Saturday from a woman saying they had caught someone trying to steal her car outside her house at 132 Lauren Circle., according to a press release.

The woman told police she had just gotten home and left her car unlocked as she went inside to grab something, police said. When she came back out, she saw a young man inside her car.

The woman said she yelled at the man and he ran away and got inside a pickup truck. Multiple other people also ran to the truck before it fled, she told police.

A Belleville officer located the truck headed westbound on Illinois 15 near North DeMazenod Drive and tried to pull it over. The truck did not stop and sped away from the officer, according to police.

The suspects led multiple police departments on a multi-city chase ending in East St. Louis in the 2200 block of North 32nd Street.

Officers arrested four of the six suspects in the truck, which was reported as stolen from St. Louis and had stolen property inside it, according to police. The fourth suspect hasnn't been formally charged.

Harvey and Tyler were also charged with obstructing identification. All three people are being held on a no bond warrant at the St. Clair County Jail, according to police.
