Tallahassee, Fla. (WTXL) - Three suspects are now behind bars following a chase in Tallahassee.

Javarius Jones, Tradarius Gaines and Tamylon Williams were all taken into custody Tuesday night.

According to authorities the three were spotted in a stolen car outside of The Market Square Liquor store on Capital Circle northwest.

When officers tried to stop them they took off on West Tharpe Street, almost hitting police cars head on. At one point, the men almost ran over a road crew.

The chase ended when the car crashed near the 800 block of Volusia Street after a blown tire.

TPD says a Taurus, 40 caliber semi-automatic handgun was located on the front driver seat floorboard directly where Tradarius Gaines was seated.

Officials believe Williams and Gaines may also be connected to several recent armed robberies in the area.
