MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The Shelby County Sheriff's Office says deputies broke up a suspected car burglary ring. Two suspects were arrested, but a third is still on the run.

William Faulkner, 20, and Khalil Curtis, 21 are in custody after police said they were found in two stolen vehicles.

The third suspect, 21-year-old Donavin Corona, who detectives say ran into the woods after the chase, is still on the run.

This all happened Wednesday when deputies say they chased a Camaro and a Ford F-250 after both vehicles refused to pull over for a traffic stop. Memphis police joined in the pursuit.

According to the affidavit, investigators watched Corona switch out bogus tags from the truck to the convertible before the chase. The chase was eventually called off and investigators arrested Faulkner and Curtis in the stolen Ford truck near Quince and Perkins roads.

Corona was spotted in the Camaro a short time later, but ran into the woods after abandoning the car near Highway 385 and Ridgeway Road.

Faulkner faces theft of property charges. Faulkner and Curtis are also charged with possession of marijuana and face a judge Thursday morning.

If you have information about where to find the third suspect, Donavin Corona, call police at 901-528-CASH (2274), text 'AWARD' to 274637 or visit www.528cash.org.
