Warren County investigators have not yet released the names of two suspects detained after a multi-county car chase ended in Henderson Wednesday.
The chase of a light blue Toyota sedan began in Virginia and involved the N.C. Highway Patrol, deputies from Warren and Vance counties and the Henderson Police Department. The chase ended on Lincoln Street near Andrews Avenue, where two suspects jumped from the vehicle and attempted to run.
“It was a stolen vehicle situation that originated up north,” said Warren County Sheriff Johnny Williams.
One of the two suspects is a 15-year-old female.
Lt. John Branch of the Warren sheriff’s office said a report was not complete late Friday and no names would be released. He said the investigation is ongoing.
Detective Terry Williams from the narcotics unit of the Warren sheriff’s office is leading the investigation. Law enforcement would not confirm or deny if drugs were involved.
