PASCO CO., Fla. -- Deputies have stopped a chase that's believed to have started in Hillsborough County.

Pasco deputies say they've taken two car burglary suspects into custody after they bailed out of their car at I-75 and State Road 54.

The suspects allegedly broke into three cars at Campo YMCA and used stolen credit cards from those burglaries at a Mobil gas station and Taco Bell.

Deputies say they then broke into another car in Lithia Springs Park and Fish Hawk Sports Complex.

Hillsborough County deputies followed the suspects in a helicopter along Highway 301 to County Line Road. Authorities say the suspects tossed stolen items from the car. A woman reportedly also jumped out of the car. She hasn't been found.

Pasco County deputies reportedly caught up with the other suspects, 22-year-old Lucious Felder and 24-year-old Terry Joseph, after they hit a traffic sign while turning northbound onto the I-75 ramp.

Felder and Joseph are both being treated at a local hospital. Police say they are both from South Florida and were in a rental car.
