Man dies in high-speed chase after armed robbery


Monroe, WI (AP) -- A man who led police on a high speed chase after an apparent armed robbery in Monroe is dead after crashing a minivan.

The Green County Sheriff's Office got a report Tuesday of a robbery at the First National Bank and Trust. WMTV says three men robbed another man at a grocery store, then forced the victim to go to the bank to cash a check. The victim alerted tellers.

Police responded and saw one man waiting in a minivan -- who sped away.

Officials say the man drove on Highway 11/81 at over 100 mph. A deputy tried to slow down the minivan near Juda, but the driver tried to avoid the stop sticks and flipped the vehicle.

The driver was dead at the scene.

Another suspect is in custody. A third man is at large.
