The suspect was captured in Glasgow Village following a search of the area and taken into custody by Special Operations Detectives. Furthermore, weapons were recovered at the scene.
According to authorities, the second suspect was taken into custody near Old Halls Ferry and Halls Ferry after the vehicle malfunctioned during the chase.
Both suspects face multiple charges for Thursday’s chase, police said.
Detectives are currently interviewing both suspects.
