Two Arrested After Two Days of Searching


A couple is arrested after leading a chase through multiple counties and stealing two vehicles.


Thursday evening, Montgomery County Sheriff Deputies assisted the Elk County Sheriff’s Office in pursuing a stolen van out of Sedgwick County. Montgomery County deputies joined the pursuit in the area of County Road 1100 & County Road 5400 at the Montgomery and Chautauqua County line. The driver, traveling at a high rate of speed, eluded law enforcement for several miles using gravel roads. Deputies lost sight of the vehicle in the area of County Road 2300 and County Road 3400. Despite setting up a perimeter and using a drone with infrared they were unable to locate the suspect.


On Friday at 9:05am, dispatch received a call that a Honda ATV was stolen in the same area. A deputy on patrol had seen the ATV occupied by a male and female, later identified as Devon and Jewels Simmons. Later on Friday, a deputy located the couple on the east side of Braums in Independence and they were taken into custody. Deputies were given the location of the ATV and the keys to the van, which was found abandoned in a field. The couple is facing charges of burglary, criminal damage to property, possession of stolen property and interference with a law enforcement officer.
