ATCHISON COUNTY, Kan. (WIBW) -- A car chase spanning three counties came to an end north of Topeka Saturday afternoon.

Around 3 p.m., Kansas Highway Patrol was called to assist in a car chase that began in Buchanan County, Missouri. The suspects were wanted there for stolen vehicles and weapons charges.

They fled to Atchison where officers pursued them from the Mo-Kan bridge, west to Brown County then west into Nemaha County, where both suspects were apprehended.

Both passenger side tires were lost in Atchison county. Atchison Police say it is unclear if the tires were damaged from spike strips or from trying to avoid them.

Atchison Sheriff and Police apprehended the driver when the vehicle got stuck on a mud road in Nemaha County.

The passenger jumped from the vehicle about a mile east of where it stopped. That person was found in a ravine in a field about 700 yards north of the road way. He was found with the assistance of KHP K-9 and other officers from surrounding areas.

23-year-old Trenton Wiseman was driving. He was charged with fleeing and eluding, interference with a law enforcement officer and possession of stolen property.

29-year-old Jacob Abney was charged with possession of stolen property and interference with a law enforcement officer.

Along with Atchison Police and Sheriff and KHP, Jackson County, Brown County, Horton Police, Kickapoo Police, Nemaha County, along with others assisted with the incident. No officers were injured.
