ALBUQUERQUE -- Chopper video from the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department shows suspected thieves driving the wrong way on major Albuquerque roads while they fled from deputies.

The incident took place on Jan. 8 when deputies responded to a home burglary call in the Far Northeast Heights. Deputies witnessed a stolen pickup truck driving away from the scene and began to pursue the suspects.

A BCSO helicopter followed the truck as it sped along several roads, including Tramway and I-25. The suspects even traveled the wrong way on San Antonio and Candelaria during their getaway.

Deputies finally stopped the vehicle with a PIT maneuver near Central and Louisiana. They arrested Daniel Mason and Felysia Chavez on multiple felony charges, including conspiracy, transferring or receiving a stolen vehicle and aggravated eluding.
