BREAKING: Two People in Custody After Mobile High-Speed Pursuit

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Mobile Police, as well as other agencies, were involved in a high-speed pursuit Friday afternoon.  Two suspects led authorities on an over 50-mile long car chase, driving up to 90 miles per hour.

The car the suspects drove was reported stolen earlier this week. Police received a call reporting the stolen vehicle and tracked down its GPS location at Greyhound Park.

As soon as police pulled up, around 2:28 p.m., the two men took off.

The chase started going westbound into Mississippi where Jackson County deputies were waiting.  The pursuit continued into Pascagoula and north on Highway 63.  On the North side of the Pascagoula River bridge, the suspects made a U-Turn and headed back south.  The car turned back east on Highway 90 and headed back into Alabama, ending in the Theodore area on Evonik Road.

The police did put spikes down on the road to stop them, but the car drove around them.

The two suspects in police custody are expected to face stolen vehicle charges.
