Officers were called to the home after someone called 911. While en route, officers observed a white Nissan Altima traveling on Riverside Drive, away from Riverview Street, at a high rate of speed. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but it fled and they pursued the vehicle, according to the release.

The Nissan eventually stopped on N.C. 14 North, and a rear passenger exited and fled on foot. The driver of the vehicle and an additional passenger were taken into custody.
