Two arrested after east side chase

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Two people were taken into custody after a police chase Friday in Evansville, and our cameras were there as they were taken away in handcuffs.

Police say it started just after 11:30 a.m. after 32-year-old Jason Wilkinson and 23-year-old Wesley Sellner stole items from the east side Walmart.

When officers got to the scene, they say the two got into a silver Dodge Charger and took off.

Police chased them through the area of Virginia and Cross Point until they say Wilkinson’s driving became to aggressive, so they called off the chase.

About a minute after the chase was called off, someone called 911 about a crash in the 1400 block of North Royal Avenue. Police say the car wrecked and the two men ran into a field.

We’re told a witness stopped Sellner in the field and kept him there until police arrived. An officer found Wilkinson a short time later.

Police say the Dodge Charger that Wilkinson was driving had been reported stolen in Chandler on January 15.

Both men will be booked in the Vanderburgh County Jail on multiple charges after they are released from the hospital.
