FAYETTE COUNTY, Tenn. (WMC) - Police captured three suspects overnight accused of robbing a convenience store in Alcorn County, Mississippi and leading authorities on a high-speed chase into Tennessee.

Officers were on the scene just outside Piperton in Fayette County Tuesday night. Police searched for the men for hours in a cornfield.

Helicopters, drones and dogs helped with the search.

On Tuesday, one suspect was captured in a cornfield and another near the store in Corinth, Mississippi. All of this brought spectators like Tyler Clark.

“Just driving by and seen all of the commotions,” said Clark. “I live on 196 born and raised. You don’t see too much like this every day.”

Police searched the cornfield for hours until the third suspect was caught.
