Robbery/High Speed Chase

Authorities have made an arrest in connection with a Dothan armed robbery that led to a high-speed chase ending in a car crash.

It happened about 9:45 Monday night on Third Avenue near Horse Shoe Loop.

The chase began after a man with a gun robbed the Hobo Pantry near the corner of Westgate Parkway and Main Street.

Police spotted a vehicle matching the description of the get-away car but the suspect refused to pull-over.

The car plunged into a creek and the suspect took off.

40-year-old Donald Shane Boyd of Marianna was arrested. He is charged with robbery first degree and theft of property first degree.

Boyd is being held in the Jackson County Jail.
