Two men are on the loose after leading police on a high speed chase following a burglary.

Around 6 a.m., Memphis police officers were called to Hobby Shop & Games on Old Summer Road. After arriving, officers saw a white vehicle parked in front of the business. When one officer tried to get out of his cruiser, he saw two men wearing ski masks run out of the store.

The officer yelled at the men to stop, but they both got in the white Nissan Maxima and took off towards the cruiser.

The officer said he was able to get back inside his cruiser and pull away before being struck.

The suspects drove away in the Maxima as the officers followed, but were unable to catch the suspected burglars.

Back at the scene, two separate MPD officers found the front of the store was rammed and the glass was broken. Police said the store was ransacked and a number of valuable merchandise was taken from the store.
