DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Some bank robbery suspects known as the "Halo Bandits" led police on a wild chase through north Texas, ending up in Dallas.

The FBI says the four suspects had been under surveillance when agents witnessed them rob the Texas Credit Union in Hurst. One suspect, a woman, was arrested at the bank, and the three others fled.

The high speed chase went into Tarrant County before the suspects turned around and led officers all the way back to Oak Cliff, in southwestern Dallas.

As the suspect vehicle was speeding eastbound down I-30, the hood of the car flew up, blocking the windshield. Around the time the car exited the freeway, the back right tire blow out.

The chase came to an end on Barlow Avenue in Oak Cliff, and three suspects got out of the car and took off on foot. A foot chase led officers through a wooded area. Two men and a woman were taken into custody without incident.

The FBI says they believe the "Halo Bandits" to be behind several bank robberies. The investigation into how many, continues.​
