MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) -

Four people were taken into police custody after an overnight police chase in a stolen vehicle through Warren County.

Warren County deputies attempted to stop a stolen Honda CRV with Ohio plates around 1:40 a.m. Tuesday. The Honda was seen driving southbound on I-75 near the 36 mile post in Franklin Township.

Authorities say the driver refused to stop and a police pursuit began. Speeds did not exceed 80 miles per hour.

The chase continued south on I-75 to State Route 63, where the stolen vehicle went west into Monroe. The pursuit continued through Monroe and eventually back into Warren County where it ended in a subdivision in Franklin Township.

Five males all fled Honda on foot after running into a dead end on a residential street.

Four of the five suspects were arrested by responding officers. The driver, 20-year-old Deontay Roberson, was arrested and charged with failure to comply, resisting arrest, receiving stolen property, drug possession and improper handling of a firearm.

Michael Roberson, 18, was charged with obstructing official business and resisting arrest.

The other two suspects charged were juveniles. The fifth passenger in the car has not yet been identified.

Police say the vehicle was stolen Monday evening in Kettering, Ohio. Kettering detectives interviewed and charged Deontay Roberson and one of the juveniles for the offense in Dayton, in addition to charges they face in Warren County.
