Two people were arrested Monday after a chase through Fayette County.
According to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, an investigator was on I-10 near Flatonia shortly after 8:30 a.m. when he observed a vehicle in the median that appeared to have just wrecked. The officer turned his lights on to investigate, but the vehicle sped off and a pursuit ensued.
The pursuit traveled to Schulenburg and up Highway 77 to Hostyn, before taking several backroads west of La Grange. Several other deputies joined the pursuit, which lasted about half an hour and ended with a felony traffic stop at the dead end of Lower Line Street in La Grange.
Two 18-year-old men from Spring were taken into custody without incident. Narcotics and contraband were located in the vehicle.
The identities of the suspects have not been released at this time.
The sheriff’s office was assisted by the La Grange Police Department.
