Couple arrested after burglary, chase

Newton County deputies Wednesday afternoon chased some suspects in a burglary of a residence just north of Neosho and caught two of them when their car crashed in Saginaw.

Chief Deputy Chris Jennings said a woman who was in her backyard on Gazelle Road about 1:30 p.m. happened to notice a Cadillac leaving her property and discovered that the front door of her home had been kicked in.

Deputies responding to the burglary spotted a vehicle matching her description on Norway Road and gave pursuit. Jennings said the chase ran as far north as Interstate 44 before turning back to the south and ending at the entrance to the Saginaw Trailer Park, where the Cadillac crashed into another vehicle. The three occupants got out and ran, he said.

Jennings said deputies caught up to two of them. A man and his girlfriend, both from Baxter Springs, Kan., were arrested. First-degree burglary charges were being sought against them. The third suspect remained at large late Wednesday afternoon.

A large jewelry box believed to have been taken in the burglary was found in the Cadillac. Jennings said deputies also were searching for items the suspects discarded out the windows of the Cadillac during the pursuit.
