Two In Custody Following High Speed Pursuit
I guess the bad guys will never learn. No matter how fast your car will go or how great of a driver you happen to be, you can't outrun a police radio and the incredible network of law enforcement professionals we have in this state.
Last night two ne'er do wells thought they could evade the grasp of the long arm of the law by making a run for it after failing to obey a command to pull over from an officer in Iberia Parish.
The pursuit moved down U.S. Highway 90 into neighboring St. Mary Parish. That's where deputies from the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office and State Police got involved. The pursuit ended when officers deployed spike strips near the Calumet Cut.
The two people inside the vehicle were taken into custody at that time. The identities of those arrested and the charges they will be facing have not been made public as of this report.
