November 6th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

In an update to a story we first posted on this morning, two people have been arrested after a high-speed chase that ended in a Pottawattamie County corn field. The Iowa State Patrol says the pursuit began this (Sunday) morning on Interstate 29 near Glenwood, when the pair drove off without paying for gas. Speeds topped 100 miles an hour. The suspects, a man and a woman, crashed the pickup a corn field near 272nd and Juniper Streets, between McClelland and Underwood.  Authorities used k-9 units and an airplane to conduct a search of the area. The suspects were found hiding in a ravine, and surrendered without incident at 10:17-a.m..  

The patrol says the vehicle they were in had been stolen from South Carolina, where it was involved in a police chase on Tuesday. The unidentified suspects were booked into the county jail on charges and numerous outstanding warrants spanning several states.
