A few moments later, local residents contacted officers in the area who pointed out the now abandoned suspect vehicle which officer had been pursuing.
After establishing a perimeter in the area, officers were able to locate and arrest two indfividuals from the fleeing vehicle. One of them is believed to be the subject wanted on the felony warrants. There are believed to be no injuries at this time. Officers are still investigating. Identities of the subjects and more information will be released on Tuesday.
