Updated: Tuesday, February 19 2013, 09:15 PM EST

An armed robbery suspect is in jail Monday night for allegedly threatening employees at the McDonald's in Waynesville. However, it took a high speed chase to catch him.

Investigators believe Rowland Fuller tried to rob a McDonald's and a Staples store on Russ Avenue in Waynesville. Fuller then led officers on a chase west to the county line at Balsam. He then he hit two patrol cars, drove back to Canton and crashed near the paper mill. Police tasered Fuller, then arrested him.

The suspect did not get any money at McDonald's. No word of he got any from Staples at this point. The car he was driving is listed as stolen from somewhere in Greenville Sunday.
