BYHALIA, MS (WMC) -

Two people have been arrested after a chase by law enforcement stretched across two counties.

The chase started in Marshall County and ended in DeSoto County on Wednesday evening after two people stole a vehicle.

The vehicle crashed shortly after entering DeSoto County. The suspects ran away from the crash, and one suspect was taken into custody.

Officials searched for the second suspect in a wooded area near Meadowbrook Church on Old Pigeon Roost, but the second suspect was not found until Thursday morning.

The suspect tried to break into a home near the church, which caused police to ask the church to lock their doors and keep anyone from going into the building. One person saw the suspect through the window during Bible study and watched as police tackled the suspect.

Investigators have not released the identities of the arrested men nor any specifics on the criminal charges they face.

    New Orleans sits atop an ancient barrier island

    To the casual observer, this looks like any other section of marsh. However, this spot in extreme Eastern New Orleans-- almost at the St. Tammany Parish line-- is unique.
