The chase started at about 3 a.m. Friday, Sprouse said. The chase started in Chester County, crossed over into York County and ended back in Chester County, he said.

Two individuals were apprehended in a joint effort by the S.C. Highway Patrol, the Chester County Sheriff’s Office and the York County Sheriff’s Office, Sprouse said.

A third individual fled on foot, he said. The third person was caught just after 11 a.m., Sprouse said.
