 Four people were taken into custody after a chase which police say started with a fake $100 bill.

Eau Claire County Sheriff Ron Cramer says one of the suspects tried to buy something at a Hastings Way business Tuesday afternoon with counterfeit money. The person was arrested, but three people in the car drove off. A high speed chase then started on Highway 53 and I-94.

Eventually, the Trempealeau and Jackson County Sheriff’s Offices, the State Patrol and the Department of Natural Resources helped with the chase.

After spike strips were used to stop the vehicle, the three ran off. Dogs were used to track them and the three suspects were taken into custody.
