The slow one is in custody just south of Jefferson. Other is possibly headed for grandma’s house at 200 block of 17th Ave. Personal effects of the suspect were found somewhere along his escape route. Update: They’ve confirmed that the outstanding suspect is the grandson, but grandma says he’s not home. They’re assuming he got away to somewhere else and are releasing containment of the area. The one that was caught had an outstanding warrant, so they’re booking him.
