LEXINGTON, Neb. -- The Nebraska State Patrol said that two people have been arrested following a multi-agency effort from an ongoing investigation that was being done by the Lexington Police Department.

It was reported that the CODE Task Force was assisting in the investigation.

NSP said that Wednesday morning, the Lexington PD tried to do a traffic stop on a Chevrolet Impala as part of this investigation.

Rather than stopping, NSP said the Impala fled heading west on Highway 30. 

Around 10 a.m., an NSP trooper said they found the Impala on Road 761 between Lexington and Cozad, and started a pursuit.

The Impala reportedly turned south and continued down gravel roads for several miles.

During the pursuit, the NSP said that the suspects threw multiple items out of the vehicle. The Impala turned west back onto Highway 30 before entering Cozad, turning north, and then turning east onto Road 761 to leave Cozad.

The NSP said that the while on Road 761, the Impala was driving more than 100 mph. 

Officials said that a Dawson County Sheriff's Deputy and a Lexington PD investigator who was assigned to the CODE Task Force, were able to successfully deploy stop sticks to slow down the vehicle. The vehicle came to a stop at the intersection of Highway 21 and Road 761. 

After the vehicle came to a stop, the NSP said that both occupants then fled on foot. It was reported that officers from several agencies were able to quickly take both suspects into custody. 

The NSP said the driver, 23-year-old Jose Ruiz of Grand Island, was arrested for willful reckless driving, flight to avoid arrest, obstruction, and two active felony warrants.

The passenger, 26-year-old Sarah Beale Lexington, was arrested for obstruction, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, littering, and two active felony warrants.

Both were lodged in Dawson County Jail. The Cozad Police Department also assisted in this incident.
