A felony car stop in Seneca leads to the capture of two people after a short manhunt.
Seneca police attempted to stop a vehicle late Thursday afternoon for a felony car stop, after receiving information from Joplin police concerning the vehicle. The occupants of the vehicle had warrants for drug and firearm violations. When they attempted to get away, officers deployed tire deflation devices near the Seneca Sports Complex north of Bethel Road. After the devices stopped the car, both occupants attempted to get away into a wooded area. Seneca Police, along with Newton County sheriff's deputies and the Missouri State Highway Patrol captured both shortly after 5:00 P.M. No names have been released as of yet, and there were no injuries.
