A serial-robbery suspect was arrested Monday night, following a wild police chase through Reno that ended in a crash.
Reno Police arrested 23-year-old Jesse Hedrick at Interstate-80 near Robb Drive. Detectives say he tried to rob a woman at gunpoint Monday morning, as she was walking into the Wells Fargo on Neil Road near Meadowood Mall.
When she refused to cooperate, the man drove off. The suspect was spotted by police a short time later...and began chasing him.
The pursuit ended when the man crashed into another car on I-80.
Hedrick is now facing charges of attempted armed robbery, felony eluding police and possession of a stolen car.
He is also being questioned for two additional robberies that happened since Sunday.
