LEFLORE COUNTY (KFSM) -- UPDATE: Police have arrested one of the three suspects from a high-speed chase on Sunday.

Joshua Farnam, 27, was arrested in Logan County, Ark. on Monday afternoon (Feb. 15).


The LeFlore County Sheriff's Office is searching for two suspects on Sunday (Feb. 14) after two high-speed chases.

At about 1:15 a.m. on Sunday, Spiro Police and the LeFlore County Sheriff's Office were involved in a high-speed chase that ended near Flower Hill Church, just off of Highway 59, according to Sgt. Terry Winn.

Police Chief Michael Draper said the chase reached speeds of up to 120 mph. He said when the pursuit ended, at least three occupants ran out of the vehicle. He said it is believed that one of the suspects then went to Coach's Lumber, located on Highway 59, west of Flower Hill Church. That suspect then stole a white GMC Sierra work truck from the business, according to police.

"Shocking part was the fact that were out here trying to make a living family run business Coach's Lumber and the fact at 3:30 in the morning, that`s all somebody`s got to do," Cordell Hull, truck's owner said.

Officers noticed the vehicle in the area, and tried to conduct a traffic stop, when another high-speed chase began.

Winn said it ended as the suspect wrecked into a ditch on Stewart Loop in the Stoney Point area, just west of Spiro.

One male suspect ran away from that incident, and is believed to have stolen another vehicle in the area, according to police.

Police need help identifying the two men in the pictures, who are wanted for questioning on the incidents. Police said they do not have a description of the third suspect.

It is unknown if the men are armed, but Winn said he does not advise people approach them.

Investigators say the suspects may be connected to other burglaries and break-ins. If you have any information on the identity of the men or their whereabouts, contact the LeFlore County Sheriff's Office at (918) 647-2317.
