Two suspects who led authorities on a chase and manhunt this morning in Pottawattamie County are in custody. Pottawattamie County Sheriff Jeff Danker says the chase began with a gas drive-off in Mills County. The vehicle, a pickup truck, was reported stolen out of North Carolina, according to Danker. It crashed into a field near 272nd and Juniper. The male and female suspects ran from the vehicle and were apprehended by troopers with the Iowa State Patrol, and after the couple was found hiding in a ravine, at 10:17-a.m. They were arrested without incident. These may be the same people who robbed a convenience store in Harlan last week. Sheriff’s deputies, k-9 units and the Iowa State Patrol were all involved in the search.
