      Suspects get stuck in the mud after multi-state chase

      A two-state police chase ended Saturday afternoon.

      Two men led law enforcement officers on a chase that spanned several counties in two states before the getaway vehicle got stuck in the mud in northeast Kansas.

      WIBW reports the Kansas Highway Patrol was called around 3 p.m. Saturday to help in the chase that began in Buchanan County, Mo. The suspects were wanted in that state for stolen vehicles and weapons charges.

      The chase went through Atchison and west to Brown County, then onto Nemaha County where the suspects were taken into custody.

      Police say the passenger jumped from the vehicle about a mile from where it stopped and was found in a ravine in a field about 700 yards north of the road.

      Both suspects are facing several charges, including possession of stolen property.
