ELLISVILLE, Mo. (AP) _ Two men are in custody after allegedly trying to rob a St. Louis County jewelry store, only to have the store owner pull out a pistol and shoot at them.

Authorities say two men from Detroit entered Clarkson Jewelers in Ellisville on Tuesday and implied they had a gun. The owner pulled out a gun of his own and chased the men, firing several rounds but missing them.

The would-be robbers sped away. Police gave chase and caught the men after the suspects' car crashed near Chesterfield Mall.

A stolen watch was recovered, but police say no weapons were found in the car.
