The state police joined the chase launching the air-wing to assist. Air 5 was shortly overhead. The suspects ditched an "item" on Glendale St in the city of Brockton. The heavyset white male suspect was quickly apprehended by officers. The black male suspect was apprehended shortly by officers near Sawtell & Field Streets. An area search for evidence & weapons recovered, based on scanner transmissions, a toy gun.
