9:45 a.m. Police arrested Daniel Harold Wharton, 22, on complaints of grand larceny, attempting to elude police and an outstanding Oklahoma County warrant on a burglary charge, police reported. Also arrested was Tesla Shauntee Hamilton, 23, on a grand larceny complaint, police reported.

About 4 a.m. Monday, officers responded to an auto burglary call where a witness reported three people stealing items out of a vehicle. The burglars left in two cars. An officer got behind both cars and started following them. The cars split up, and the officer followed a white Lincoln Town Car. The driver sped away, and officers pursued. The pursuit lasted 2 minutes and 25 seconds before ending due to high speeds and wet roads. About five minutes later, the Town Car was found wrecked at W Reno and Rockwell avenues. Wharton and Hamilton were found in a field nearby and arrested, police reported. Anyone with information about others involved Monday can call police Crime Stoppers 235-7300.

5:30 a.m. A high-speed pursuit ended at Rockwell Avenue and Reno Avenue early Monday, when a car crashed with two people inside, according to police reports.

Two people who were in the crash about 4:30 a.m. fled, but both were captured at a nearby camp of homeless people, police report.

The chase started after a van was reported to have been burglarized. A man and a woman were seen in a car that topped speeds over 100 mph during the pursuit, police said. Check NewsOK.com for updates.
