Two accused shoplifters are in custody after they led several area law enforcement agencies on a high speed chase, which at times exceeded 100 miles per hour, Sunday Night.

Sapulpa Police Master Patrolman Derrick Clayton tells KTUL.com, officers were called to the Wal-Mart near Highways 66 and 117 around seven o'clock on reports of two shoplifters making off with a couple of laptops.

Police attempted to catch-up to the two and their getaway vehicle. However, the two suspects already had a lead on the pursuing officers.

The chase wound its way up the Turner Turnpike and eventually onto several neighborhood streets in Sand Springs. Patrolman Clayton says speeds at times exceeded 100 miles per hour.

Officers, through the use of stop sticks, were able to bring the chase to a safe end near 129th West Avenue and the Sand Springs Expressway around 7:30pm

Officers recovered two stolen laptops along with a stash of drugs on the driver.

Both the suspect and his accomplice were transported back to Sapulpa where they're expected to face multiple charges.

Both Sand Springs Police and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol assisted in the chase.
