Two men who fled after police responded to a burglary in progress on Signal Mountain on Monday morning are now in custody.
Cole Nathaniel Howard, 24, was captured when he came out of the woods on the W Road.
Christopher Whitford, 24, turned himself into the Hamilton County Jail Monday evening.
They face two counts of aggravated burglary, theft, felon in possession of a weapon, destruction of evidence and criminal conspiracy.
The police call was on Laurel Breeze Drive. Information was received from the victim that the two suspects left the scene in a silver sedan. Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle; however, the vehicle eluded them and a short pursuit ensued.
The vehicle was located in the Fontaine Woods Apartments complex on Mountain Creek Road, where the suspects fled into the woods.
The suspects’ vehicle contained numerous items, including a Stihl chainsaw, Dewalt grinder and hunting bows that were linked to a burglary on Roberts Mill Road, the sheriff's office said.
The suspects also threw two long guns from the vehicle during the pursuit. Those weapons were recovered.
