EDMOND — Two juveniles face a variety of complaints after attempting to elude deputies, the Logan County Sheriff’s Office reports.

At about 10 a.m. Wednesday, the Logan County Sheriff’s Office received a call from an Orlando resident who said two people were trying to steal her vehicle from her driveway.

At this point, the vehicle was identified as a stolen vehicle from Missouri, with the two suspected of stealing the truck being listed as runaway juveniles, deputies stated. The two were reported to have a hunting rifle and a handgun with them in the vehicle.

The suspects led deputies on a lengthy high-speed chase southbound on State Highway 77 from Orlando to Guthrie, deputies stated. The vehicle continued through Guthrie eastbound ending up at a dead end of Industrial Road at the Country Club.

Deputies stated the two suspects fled on foot into the unimproved area on the southwest side of the country club lake. A perimeter was immediately established and the two suspects were taken into custody without injury, deputies stated.

The stolen vehicle and guns were recovered. Both juveniles were transported to the Logan County jail, and they will later be transferred to a juvenile detention center, deputies stated.

According to the Logan County Sheriff’s Office the juveniles face complaints for attempted larceny of the vehicle in Orlando, reckless driving, attempt to elude police, possession of stolen property, possession of firearms in the commission of a felony and destruction of private property.
