Two arrests have been made in a string of Spartanburg area robberies and a chase that followed.

Webb is charged with strong arm robbery, blue light violation, attempted armed robbery and assault and batter, among others.  Brown is charged strong arm robbery and accessory after the fact.

As part of their investigation Wednesday, deputies tried to stop Webb while driving in the Beaumont area when he led them on a chase through Converse Heights, they say.

During the chase, officials say Webb tried to run into vehicles driven by Sheriff Wright and another deputy.  Another sheriff’s office vehicle was damaged while trying to stop Webb.

Webb was able to get away until he was located later at the Brookwood Inn.

No injuries were reported as a result of the chase.

This was the fourth high-speed chase in the Upstate in a week's time.
