LAWRENCE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - Two people are facing charges in Lawrence County after authorities say they led them on a 30-minute chase through cornfields and woods in three different counties.

It started in Colbert County just after 1 p.m. on Wednesday and ended about a half hour later when the suspects got a stolen Jeep stuck between two trees off Highway 110 in Lawrence County.

30-year-old Josh Letson and his ex-wife 27-year-old Hailey Letson are charged with first degree receiving stolen property.

Authorities say the chase started when they spotted the Letsons and knew they had outstanding warrants.

The pair is suspected in a number of home burglaries and drug-related crimes.

They're being held in the Lawrence County jail.
