Two people were arrested after a short pursuit through a Salina neighborhood early this morning.

At approximately 1:50 a.m. Wednesday in the 200 block of S. Penn Avenue, a Saline County deputy stopped a 2014 Dodge Ram pickup that had been reported for suspicious behavior, Saline County Sheriff's Captain Jim Hughes said this morning. The pickup had allegedly been driving up and down alleys in the neighborhood, he said.

In the pickup were Greg Todd, 39 of Salina, and Cady Cole, 23, of Salina, Hughes said.

After talking with the two, the deputy released them and then ran the license plate on the pickup. When he discovered that the license plate was stolen out of Ottawa County, he attempted to stop the pickup once again, but a short pursuit ensued, Hughes said.

The pickup stopped near the intersection of N. Kansas Avenue and E. Elm Street, and Todd and Cole took off on foot, Hughes said. The deputy apprehended Cole nearby. A short time later, another deputy apprehended Todd elsewhere in the neighborhood.
