GREENFIELD, Ind. (October 3, 2015)–Three teens are in custody after robbing a Greenfield Walgreens and leading police on a chase that ended with a crash in an Indianapolis northeast side neighborhood.
Shortly after 9 a.m. Saturday, Greenfield police were called to a reported robbery of the Walgreens at 1195 North State Street.

As the vehicle headed into a neighborhood, the driver lost control and crashed into two parked vehicles in the 9600 block of East 39th Street.
The 19 year old driver was pinned in the crashed vehicle, while his 18 and 15-year-old passengers fled.
