Once the suspects entered the south end of Pickens County, officers laid spike strips ahead of the pursuit. Officer vehicles attempted to stop the suspects several times, to no avail. But, the statement indicated that the suspect's vehicle lost control and flipped before making it to the spike strips, concluding the chase.

Officers were able to arrest both occupants of the vehicle without incident. Both suspects still remain unidentified.

The driver is an active Pickens County fugitive who's wanted on several felony charges. They are likely to face additional charges upon conclusion of the investigation.

"This is an example of Law Enforcement working together and having a successful outcome," the statement read. "Each of these Officers are more than willing to protect the citizens of Pickens County and put themselves in harm's way this and every day. Thank you for your continued support as we all work hard to make Pickens County a safe place to work and live."

The statement concluded by saying Pickens County Sheriff  Todd Hall "expresses his thanks to everyone involved in this event."
