LUBBOCK COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

Two suspects are in custody after a chase with law enforcement on Thursday evening.

It started around 6:30 p.m. near 38th Street and Avenue P.

DPS tells us a driver fled while they were attempting to make a traffic stop, leading officers on a lengthy pursuit through the city into Lynn and Terry counties, where the suspect eventually wrecked his vehicle.

The pursuit ended at approximately 7:13 p.m. when the suspect wrecked his vehicle at the intersection of CR 705 and CR 211.

A K9 unit from the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office was deployed to aid in the arrest of 32-year-old Christopher Alexander. The passenger, 34-year-old Lindsey Ruffin, was also taken into custody.

Both suspects were taken to UMC for treatment of minor injuries suffered during the vehicle crash and subsequent arrest.

DPS says they recovered several items thrown from the vehicle, including an unknown quantity of illegal narcotics, a cell phone, and a small quantity of ammunition.

They say criminal charges filed will include evasion, possession of narcotics, and a litany of various other traffic violations.
