STOWE, Vt. (AP) — Vermont state police say it took more than five hours to apprehend a pair of suspects after a traffic stop, chase, crash into a cruiser and three mile hike into the woods.

Trooper investigating recent burglaries had been looking for 52-year-old Jerry Savo and 29-year-old Emily Legacy since earlier this month. They were pulled over around 2 p.m. Friday in Jericho, but authorities say Savo drove into side of the officer’s cruiser and took off.

The pursuit continued through several towns, with stolen items tossed from the car along the way. Officers later tracked the pair on foot and arrested them around 8 p.m. in Stowe. It was unknown Saturday if they have attorneys.

Richmond Police Chief Alan Buck was hospitalized after suffering a medical problem during the chase.
