    The situation began Friday afternoon when an unidentified armed man stole a Maserati from a north Charlotte dealership, Gulf Export.

    Surveillance video of the robbery showed the suspect walk through the front door, then to the back of the office, and demand the keys to the Maserati.

    Police said they then received a call Monday afternoon for an armed robbery at the Cash America Pawn store on North Tryon Street in north Charlotte.

    Officials said the car at the scene matched the stolen Maserati officers were looking for. Police were able to track the Maserati and followed it into an east Charlotte neighborhood.

    Authorities said the chase ended at the intersection of Plaza Walk Drive and Eaves Drive in northeast Charlotte.

    Only Chopper 9 Skyzoom was overhead when the driver, who police identified as Jango Touray, took off running, and captured the moments officers tracked him down and arrested him.

    Neighbors in an east Charlotte neighborhood near The Plaza told Channel 9 the suspect sped down their streets with police following.

    "I could hear sirens off in the distance and they stopped abruptly," Nina Opoku said. "I could see the guy ducking into the woods and then he kind of let out this yell. Then, you could see the officers chasing him. I'm just glad they caught him and everyone left in one piece."

    Chopper 9 also flew over the Cash America Pawn store, where we saw several officers and crime scene tape roping off the area.

    Channel 9 crews saw the driver of the Maserati being loaded onto a stretcher after being taken into custody.

    Police said though the stolen Maserati was used in Monday's robbery, they are still trying to determine if Touray, or some else, actually stole the car.
