Police arrested Logan Hall, 18, of Corinth on aggravated robbery charges following a car chase Friday morning, according to a Denton police report. 

Police allege Hall robbed a 27-year-old man and the cash register of a Chevron gas station store in the 2400 block of South Interstate 35E shortly before 6:30 a.m. Friday, the report said. Officers were dispatched to the scene after a caller reported an armed robbery. 

The suspect fled on foot before getting into a vehicle and fleeing the scene southbound on I-35E. After officers arrived, a car chase after the suspect ensued, during which police lost sight of the suspect's vehicle, halting the pursuit. Corinth police later reportedly searched surrounding areas and regained sight of the vehicle and resumed the pursuit.  

Hall reportedly wrecked his vehicle in the chase and later was arrested. He was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of evading arrest.

The 18-year-old was being held at Denton County Jail in lieu of $110,000 bail. He has a prior criminal history of one vehicle burglary charge from July.
