CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

An armed robbery at a 7-Eleven in Chesterfield turned into a police pursuit early Monday morning.

The robbery happened at the store in the 100 block of Turner Road around 3:40 a.m.

Police say two suspects entered the store, displayed a firearm, and demanded money. The suspects were seen getting into a car, but they ended up crashing into a tree near the intersection of Midlothian Turnpike and Providence Road. One of the suspects ran from the scene, while the other -- 22-year-old Markquis L. Deyo of Sandston -- was taken into custody. 

Police say Deyo initially gave them two names. He is charged with robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

A low flying helicopter was in the area to help with the search and woke up several people.

There were no injuries.

Officers are working to confirm the identity of the suspects.
