3 arrested after police chase in West Springfield


Three people are facing charges after leading police on a chase through West Springfield on Sunday.

According to West Springfield police, the incident started when three suspects allegedly stole several items from Home Depot. 

They were later identified as: 

  1. Michael Masselli of West Haven, Connecticut; Charged with failure to stop for police, larceny over $1,200 and receiving stolen property under $1,200.
  2. James Cuneo of Hamden, Connecticut; Charged with larceny over $1,200
  3. Bianca Flores of North Haven, Connecticut; Charged with larceny over $1,200

The suspects allegedly managed to get away and drive off. That’s when an officer saw the suspects’ vehicle on Route 5 North and attempted to pull them over, but they then traveled onto I-91 South to I-291 East.

According to police, the vehicle reached speeds over 75-miles-an-hour, before eventually coming to a stop in Chicopee.

Chicopee Police and Massachusetts State Police assisted in the arrest and recovered $2,944.20 in electrical supplies from the car.
