Berkeley County Sheriff’s Department (BCSD) reports a chase of two Maryland men through Berkeley County.

Deputies began the high-speed chase of a Toyota 4 Runner that refused to stop for a traffic infraction shortly before 2 a.m. June 17.

The vehicle took various routes at high rates of speed with reckless indifference to avoid arrest attempting to reach Interstate 81.

The front tires of the Toyota successfully defaulted after spike strips were deployed and a pit maneuver stopped the vehicle before entering the Interstate to head south.

Two males jumped from the Toyota and fled on foot.

After a short foot chase that included a Canine Officer Tyler Cook and Tyler Sigler were apprehended in the Pepper Tree Road Jamaica Trail area.

Further investigation found the vehicle was stolen and was loaded with stolen property including weapons.

The stolen property and vehicle were taken from Cook’s recently deceased grandparents’ Boonsboro Maryland home.

The grandparents’ home was vandalized sometime June 16.

The pair are facing several charges including fleeing law enforcement and transporting stolen property across state lines.

Additional charges are pending in the ongoing investigation.
