Officers said they saw a maroon Mitsubishi that appeared “suspicious” and when they tried to stop it, the driver pulled into a home’s driveway, claiming to know the people living there.

However, when officers talked to the homeowner, he said he didn’t know the driver.

The driver didn’t know officers had placed spike strips behind his tires and he took off, ramming a police car multiple times in the process.

Officers said the chase reached speeds of over 80 miles per hour and it didn’t take long before the suspect’s tires blew out.

The driver crashed into a fence near Granger High School and ran.

Authorities caught up to the driver, who had previous warrants out for his arrest, by the back door of the school.

Police said a woman was also in the car but not part of the chase; she was arrested on outstanding warrants.

Officers said they found drugs and stolen property in the car.

Authorities arrested the 31-year-old suspects, driver Thomas Winn and Laycie Browne.

      lulz I went to school with “browne shoe Laycie and her friend jenny M. the innocent was questionable back then when she was in terra linda/elkridge/copper hills and wanted to run for class president.

      Oh wait who am I kidding she didnt get in that much trouble then and wasnt shoplifting and pumping her self full of drugs ETC now she looks hell of a lot older less innocent on the drugs. The loser in the car that she is with looks like he is on massive amounts of Heroin too. nice job good thing you guys didnt hit and kill somebody on this little 80mph joy ride. clean yourself up.
