LEWISTON, Maine (AP) — Maine police have arrested two New Hampshire men they say robbed a Lewiston bank and led them on a high-speed chase into Saco.

The Portland Press Herald reports that police have charged 64-year-old Neil West and 46-year-old Joseph Richards with armed robbery in connection with a hold-up Saturday morning at the TD Bank on Lisbon Street in Lewiston.

Maine state police spokesman Stephen McCausland told the paper he doesn't know the hometowns of either man.

Police on the Maine Turnpike spotted the pair in a minivan right after the robbery. The driver engaged police in a high-speed chase that ended on the front lawn of a home in Saco.

It was not immediately known if they have lawyers.
