GULFPORT/BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Four men are in custody after police say they robbed a Gulfport bank, then led officers on a high speed chase into Biloxi Wednesday morning. The chase ended at a hotel near the intersection of Highway 90 and I-110.

It all started just before 11am when police said the men robbed the Wells Fargo bank on Courthouse Road. They took off down busy Pass Road in a white U-Haul van, with at least half dozen officers joining the chase.

The van eventually stopped at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel on Highway 90 in Biloxi. A man who had just checked out of the hotel told WLOX News he encountered three of the armed men in the parking lot. When the guest turned to go back inside the hotel lobby, he was followed by the suspects, so he ran back out of the building.

All four men were arrested at the hotel.

No one was hurt in Biloxi. One woman was taken to the hospital from the bank in Gulfport, but officials said it was for anxiety, and she appeared to be okay.

Watch for more details on the chase later today on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
