WESTMINSTER, Colo. — Five people were arrested Tuesday after a smash-and-grab at a cellphone store, the Westminster Police Department said.

The incident happened about 1:30 a.m. at a Boost Mobile store at West 84th Avenue and Federal Boulevard.

A GMC pickup truck crashed through the front of the store and an undisclosed amount of merchandise was taken.

Officers located the suspect vehicle in the area of West 120th Avenue and Pecos Street about an hour later.

The vehicle fled from officers, spurring a chase. Officers disabled the vehicle near Midway Boulevard and Sheridan Boulevard.

Five occupants then fled from the truck on foot. A K-9 was brought in and apprehended one of the suspects.
