Texas Fugitives arrested in high speed chase

Posted: Updated:

Two Texas fugitives are in Scotts Bluff County Jail tonight after leading law enforcement on a high speed chase yesterday.

Twenty one year old Joshua Carver and Alexandrea Prior have been arrested on burglary and other charges.  

A Mitchell police officer attempted to pull a car with Texas plates over when a pursuit began.     Deputies spent about a half hour pursuing the vehicle, with the driver exceeding speeds of 100 miles an hour.  

The two eventually abandoned the vehicle after having engine trouble.   Officers then pursued on foot and the two were arrested.

Scotts Bluff Police say that a search of the vehicle revealed an AR 15 rifle, many rounds of ammunition and multiple knives.
