Authorities say three of the suspects entered the Wyckoff store just before noon Saturday and used sledgehammers to smash display cases. They then fled with numerous items and fled in a sport utility vehicle driven by the other suspect.
The SUV was pursued by police from Wyckoff and several other nearby towns. One person soon jumped from the vehicle and was captured, but the chase continued until the SUV turned into a Hawthorne strip mall and collided with the cruiser.
Two Hawthorne officers were injured during the chase, but their injuries were not considered life-threatening.
