Two Chicago men have been charged after a retail theft at Walmart in Johnsburg led to a police pursuit and rollover crash that ended with sheriff canines tracking down three suspects.

The retail theft happened just before 3 p.m. Monday at the Walmart, 3801 Running Brook Farm Boulevard in Johnsburg.

Johnsburg Police Chief Jason Greenwald said officers were informed that three males had entered the store and a theft was committed.

The suspects and the vehicle involved were suspected of a similar crime in another town as well.

Officers attempted to stop the vehicle on Running Brook Farm Boulevard, Greenwald said.

The vehicle refused to stop and officers pursued the car northbound on Richmond Road from Walmart.

Greenwald said the vehicle was traveling in a reckless manner and left the roadway where it crashed in a ditch.

The vehicle became disabled in the ditch near Route 31 and Harts Road in unincorporated McHenry County.

Greenwald said the driver and two passengers fled on foot from the vehicle through an adjacent field.

The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office said three of their canines — Jett, Deuce and Enzo — and their handlers were requested to assist the Johnsburg Police Department in the search.

The canines located two of the three suspects in a field and another in a wooded area, the sheriff’s office said.

The three suspects were taken into custody without further incident. The incident caused brief traffic delays in the area.

The driver, identified as Tishawn D. Redmond, 28, of Chicago, was charged with retail theft enhanced, aggravated fleeing to elude, reckless conduct, resisting a peace officer, reckless driving, leaving the scene of a crash, speeding, failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash and driving an uninsured motor vehicle.
