Two in custody following suspicious vehicle incident
COLUMBIA - Police took two people into custody Thursday morning following a traffic stop which led to a crash.
At around 2:30 a.m., a CPD officer reported seeing a vehicle with no license plate and no temporary tag while on patrol near Volunteer Drive.
The vehicle allegedly refused to stop, later crashing in a residential yard and tree about a block away from where the incident began.
No one was in the vehicle when the officer found it, but the officer did find a gun outside the vehicle.
A K-9 unit from the Boone County Sheriff's Department helped the Columbia Police Department in searching for the suspects. Investigators found two people who were in the vehicle, and said two more have not been found.
The investigation is ongoing at this time.
