WAYNE TOWNSHIP -

Two people have been arrested after an alleged burglary led to a car chase that exceeded 100 miles per hour.

According to reports, 29-year-old Joshua Pokony and 29-year-old Megan Case, both of Orwell, allegedly broke into a home on the 8500 block of Creek Road in Williamsfield.

Police say they received a call about the burglary in progress around 4:45 a.m. on Wednesday.

The victim had hired a private investigator after the home was broken into multiple times.

A GPS device had been installed on the suspects car and showed that the vehicle was parked at the Creek Road home.

According to reports, an officer walked around the house and saw to people in all black leaving with items from the home.

Reports say the officer began to chase the suspects but they were able to get into the car and drive away as the officer attempted to break the car's window.

The officer pursued the car into Trumbull County before the vehicle went off the road and into a yard on Davis North Road.

Reports say the officer got out of the car and ordered the suspects to get out but they took off and the officer had to terminate the pursuit.

Police say the suspects were arrested in Geauga County with stolen items in the car.

The homeowner said that Pokony and Case stole multiple items including Civil War era guns and jewelry during the burglaries.

According to reports, the suspects claimed to not remember the burglaries saying that they blacked out.

Case and Pokony are charged with theft, burglar and failure to comply with the order of a police officer.
