Lawrence County police arrested 30-year-old Joshua Letson and 27-year-old Hailey Letson after a multi county police chase.
They are charged with receiving stolen property, failure to appear warrants and several traffic violations.

Lawrence County Sheriff Gene Mitchell said Colbert County units attempted to initiate the traffic stop on HWY 157 near the White Oak community. At the traffic stop, Joshua turned onto County Line Road traveling back to Lawrence County. Sheriff Mitchell said the vehicle pursuit lasted over 30 minutes and went through several vegetable crops/fields on the west side of Lawrence County to elude from law enforcement.

The arrests were a result of a joint drug investigation between Colbert and Lawrence county drug task force.

More charges will be added.
