Local authorities remain on scene in search of a suspect who fled on foot after a chase through Macon County Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday afternoon, a Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy attempted to stop a vehicle after it was discovered that the vehicle he was driving was reported earlier as stolen.  The deputy activated his blue lights but the driver refused to stop and continued to drive away at a high rate of speed.  At some point during the chase, two people exited the vehicle and were quickly apprehended.  As the chase continued on, deputies were able to conduct a field interview with the two individuals being detained and were able to identify the driver involved in the chase.
