BROOKLYN, Il. -One man is in custody after a home invasion turned into a police pursuit that crosses state lines and ends with a lengthy standoff. Police caught the 32-year-old male suspect about 1 a.m. Thursday. The incident started about 7:45 p.m. in north St. Louis.

Investigators say the suspect committed an armed home invasion. When police arrived, the man sped off in a Pontiac Grand Prix.

St. Louis city officers chased him into Brooklyn, Illinois where police say the car 'became disabled.' A SWAT team was called when the man refused to come out of the car.

Police say nearly three and a half hours later, the SWAT team got the man out after busting the car`s windows and using pepper spray. No one was seriously hurt.

The car and a gun found in it were both stolen.
