    A man and his teenage daughter were jailed after robbing a bank then leading officers on a chase through North Texas with speeds that reached as high as 150 mph, sheriff's deputies said. 

    At about noon on Thursday, Johnson County Sheriff dispatchers received a call about an armed robbery at Grandview Bank located at 105 Criner Street in Grandview.

    Officials said a man wearing a hat and a bandana walked into the bank and pulled a handgun on a teller.

    After fleeing the bank in a car, Grandview police started to follow the man and his 19-year-old daughter, who was also in the vehicle.

    Johnson County Sheriff's deputies and Alvarado and Mansfield police officers chased the pair in a high-speed pursuit.

    At approximately 12:40 p.m., the vehicle officials were chasing crashed into some trees on Davis Street in Mansfield.

    After a brief struggle, the man and his daughter were taken into custody, officers said. A semi-automatic handgun was recovered from their vehicle.

    On Friday, Alvarado police released dash camera video of the chase, including its dramatic ending.

    The video shows the suspects' vehicle narrowly missing cars as it weaves through a busy intersection. Later, the suspects led officers down a dirt road, kicking up dust as they sped away. The video then shows the suspects' car careen into a grove of trees, followed by five officers slowly surrounding them with their guns drawn.

    Michael Bailey, 41, is charged with aggravated robbery and evading arrest, and Megan Bailey, 19, is charged with aggravated robbery.

    They were booked in the Johnson County Jail. It was not immediately clear if they had an attorney. 

    No one was injured, and the FBI is assisting in the bank robbery investigation.

    The father's bond was $500,000. His daughter's bond was $25,000.
