BRANDON FL (WFLA) - The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says aviation video shows three burglary suspects being pursued by Manatee County deputies on Monday.

The deputies began pursuing the suspects' vehicle east on I-275 and then north onto I-75 with their vehicle reaching speeds up to 125 miles-per-hour. The pursuit started after a reported burglary in Palmetto.

About a half hour later, the suspects attempted to exit at Highway 60 when they lost control and slid off the roadway. The video shows the suspects then bail from the vehicle, jump over a fence and run into the Dillard's store at the Brandon Westfield mall.

The three suspects were later captured and arrested in the department store. Dillard's was evacuated during the incident. 

Deputies arrested 21-year-old Darrell Matthew, 18-year-old Jaquavius Francis, and 21-year-old Patrick Hooker and have charged them with Armed Burglary and Grand Theft Auto at this time.
