DALLAS (1080 KRLD) -  Five people, reportedly heavily armed, are locked up after a long, winding police chase in Dallas.

The chase began just before 1:00 a.m.Friday with a car-jacking in the 4600 block of Monarch Street in east Dallas.

Dallas Police spotted the stolen SUV's and began following them, it led to a 40-minute chase winding around Dallas.

The SUV was speeding along residential streets, occasionally going against traffic and even trying to ram Dallas police cars.

With help from the Dallas police helicopter, squad cars had little trouble tracking the SUV until the driver pulled onto a dead-end street in Arcadia Park near Loop 12 and West Davis. 

That's where it ended and all five of the suspects were hauled in for questioning.
