(KMOV.com) – Several suspects are currently in police custody after they lead officers on a pursuit which ended near Fairmont City Wednesday afternoon. 

Police said the chase began in Jennings after a reported home invasion. According to police, a woman and her granddaughter found four people burglarizing her home in the 2400 block of Center Drive.

Authorities said two suspects were arrested in the Jennings area after fleeing the scene.  The other two led authorities on a chase that ended near a series of lakes near Fairmont City.

Skyzoom 4 was over the scene as those suspects fled the vehicle on foot near Interstate 70 and Highway 111 and tried to run from authorities. They jumped into a body of water and swam from authorities before they were both arrested on the banks. 

Authorities said they found several pounds of marijuana in the suspects' vehicle.
