A chase by vehicle and on foot led to the arrest of the driver of the vehicle and his passenger.
The driver, a juvenile, was taken to the Adams County Youth Home, charged with unlawful possession of stolen motor vehicle, aggravated fleeing or attempting to elude a peace officer, no valid driver’s license and resisting arrest.
The passenger, 19 year old Jade Edwards of Nebo, was arrested on a Pike County warrant for criminal sexual abuse and an original charge of resisting or obstructing a peace officer.
