— Timing can be everything. Just ask Raleigh police Officer M.M. Seaman.

Seaman drove by the Crown gas station and convenience store at 8109 Falls of the Neuse Road about 10:30 p.m. Thursday, noticing that two men were robbing the store.

Raleigh Police Sgt. Kirk Adams says it's possible these suspects have committed other robberies.

Seaman chased the suspects' car for less than five miles at speeds of up to 70 mph before it crashed into a car at Lynn Road and North Hills Drive. No one was injured in the crash.
