UPDATE: Two arrested after high-speed chase

Posted: Updated:
FITCHBURG (WKOW) -- Police arrested two people they say were inside a vehicle that led police on a high-speed chase Monday.

Officers were looking for a person on an outstanding felony warrant. They found this person in a vehicle in the area of 2500 Chamberlin Avenue, which then took off, leading officers on a chase that went through Madison's near west and southwest sides. Madison police officers had to end their pursuit when the vehicle entered the King James Way neighborhood in Fitchburg.

MPD Captain Joe Balles says a few minutes later, people living in that neighborhood contacted police in the area and pointed out the now-abandoned suspect vehicle.

Police secured the perimeter and eventually arrested two people from the fleeing vehicle. One of them is believed to be the person wanted on the felony warrants. Police say they will release more information about the suspects on Tuesday.

There are no reports of any injuries.
