30-year-old Scottie Grigsby and 38-year-old Jamie Delahoussaye are behind bars after trying to get away from Iberia Parish Sheriff's deputies in a stolen vehicle.

Sheriff Louis Ackal says the pursuit began at Daspit Road at W. Tampico Street after deputies located the stolen vehicle out of New Iberia. It lasted 18 minutes and ended at the intersection of Bellplace Olivier Road and Loreauville Road when the suspect vehicle struck another vehicle from behind and lost control. Speeds reached over 85 mph during the chase.

Deputies have been trying to figure out who's behind several residential and vehicle burglaries in the Acadian Acres Subdivision, which is where the suspicious vehicle was reported.

Both suspects have outstanding warrants from other parishes.  Acadian Ambulance was called to the scene to check on the driver of the vehicle struck by the suspects.

Further charges are pending and the investigation is continuing.
