Pursuit of robbery suspects shuts down SR 29. (Submitted photo)

Deputies with the Collier County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a robbery at the Immokalee Mini Mart at 231 S. 1st Street just before 5pm Tuesday.

Deputies later located the suspect vehicle and a pursuit ensued southbound on SR 29 toward I-75.

The suspect vehicle crashed north of I-75 where two suspects were immediately taken into custody. A third suspect fled on foot into the woods but was later arrested and transported by Collier County EMS to an area hospital.

Deputies originally closed SR 29 as multiple officers swarmed the area but by 7:30pm the road was back open.
