JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Police arrested two people and are searching for a third suspected of stealing a car and leading law enforcement on a chase through several counties.

Arkansas State Police said the chase began around 8:05 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 8, in Sharp County when a white Hyundai with Tennessee tags was reported stolen.

A new video shows that chase starting in Highland rolling through downtown Hardy and then finishing in Jonesboro where the two in the car tried to run.

Highland Police Chief Steven Dravenstott said the whole situation started after police tried to get the driver to turn their lights on.

“I believe he had just his park lights on and of course, it was about 7, 8 o’clock at night, it was dark when we pulled them over and they just shut all the lights off and took off,” Dravenstott said.

Jonesboro police arrested two of the suspects and are searching for a third person who ran away.
