Police spotted a vehicle at about 4:20 p.m. on U.S. 24 Tuesday that was reported stolen in an apparent armed home invasion overnight Monday in Oak Grove.

The vehicle fled west on U.S. 24, smashing into another car at the intersection of Truman Road and Sterling Avenue and then another vehicle at Truman Road and Winchester in Kansas City.
There were no reports of serious injuries but the passenger in the suspect vehicle was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

The two men were arrested after a brief foot chase near the intersection of Truman Road and Winchester.

Officers recovered weapons from the suspects.

Sievers and Bailey allegedly broke into an elderly woman’s home late Monday in Oak Grove, according to reports. They stole her cell phone and the Toyota vehicle.

She was uninjured, according to Oak Grove police.
