RANDOLPH COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Less than a week after leading police on a high-speed chase, a husband and wife from Region 8 are behind bars on more than a dozen charges each nearly 24 hours away from home.
The Randolph County Sheriff's Department told Region 8 News that Brett and Alissia Morrow, who led a state trooper on a high-speed chase, ditched their car in a wooded area then took off on foot last week, have been arrested in Nevada.
Police say after ditching their car along Skaggs Ferry Road last Tuesday, they went to a nearby farm and stole a truck and multiple other items from a home and shop building.
Inside the car they ditched, police found a checkbook later determined to be stolen.
On Saturday, Randolph County authorities were contacted by the Nevada Highway Police. They told the Randolph County Sheriff's Department they located the stolen truck during a traffic stop and had 28-year-old Brett Morrow and 23-year-old Alissia Morrow in custody.
After being read her Miranda rights, Alissia Morrow told Nevada Highway Police Trooper Nick Lara that she fled from police the previous week with the help of her husband.
Alissia also told Trooper Lara that after ditching their car, she and Brett went to an area farm shop and residence and stole a truck and other items from the home.
The man who had his truck stolen told police that Brett Morrow had recently worked for him at the farm.
Trooper Lara attempted to interview Brett Morrow. However, he declined to answer any questions.
The investigation is pending but the two Randolph County residents have already racked up a number of felony and misdemeanor charges.
In Randolph County, Brett and Alissia Morrow have each been charged with residential burglary, commercial burglary, theft, hindering apprehension, theft by receiving and fleeing on foot.
In Nevada, Brett and Alissia Morrow have been charged with driving over the speed limit, driving without a license, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, furnishing or attempting to bring a controlled substance into a state prison and resisting a public officer.
The investigation is still pending.
The Morrows remain in the Elko County Jail.
