Four minors were taken into custody Monday afternoon after police stopped a stolen car in Monroe.

In a Facebook post, the Monroe Police Department said officers tried to pull the car over on Concord Highway around noon. The car didn’t stop, police said, and led them on a chase that continued to the Monroe Bypass.

Deputies with the Union County Sheriff’s Office used a device to deflate the car’s tires. The car came to a stop on Highway 74 at the Scott Clark Toyota dealership.
