A man and a woman managed to escape from two different law enforcement agencies during an overnight chase before eventually getting caught.
Bernalillo County deputies tell KOB Eyewitness News 4 that they tried to stop a speeding car on 2nd Street in the North Valley.
The vehicle headed up through Rio Rancho and onto Highway 550 before State Police took up the chase, following the car to Cuba.
State Police say the car stopped, and the two suspects took off running.
K-9 units helped look for the suspects, but they were not initially found.
A few hours later, a State Police Sergeant located the man and woman, based on evidence that had been found near the abandoned vehicle.
Both suspects later confessed to the theft of the vehicle as well as the pursuit.
