Last updated on Wednesday, April 29, 2009

(SEYMOUR) - Three Illinois men were arrested Monday in Seymour when a purse snatching turned into a chase, and then an accident.

The Seymour Tribune reports 22-year-old Juvonda White and 20-year-old Reginald Haywood, both of Champaign, Illinois, along with a minor, were all arrested.

The two older men face charges of conspiracy to commit robbery and two counts of possession of stolen property, while White faces a charge of criminal recklessness with a vehicle.

The paper says the incident started when the men allegedly grabbed a purse from a woman in Seymour and ended when Haywood wrecked his car with the three inside in Scott County late Monday night.

White and Haywood were taken to Jackson County jail, no details are out on the juvenile, including charges.
