EUGENE, Ore. - All suspects are now in custody after the Eugene Police, Springfield Police and Oregon State Police were looking for two suspects who fled from an outside agency into Eugene.

A total of four people associated with a vehicle have been accounted for.

The driver abandoned the car at Norkenzie and Monterrey after the vehicle hit a curb while fleeing from police, authorities say.

Both the driver and passenger in the front of the car took off running in opposite directions.

The couple that was in the back of the vehicle did not run. They were questioned by police and then released.

Police say the woman broke into an empty residence, where a K-9 later tracked and found her. She was arrested.

The male suspect was found hiding under a house by the other K-9.

Originally, deputies encouraged all residents in the Cal Young area to lock their doors, and be on the lookout for suspicious activity in the area. Eugene and Springfield officers spent part of the evening going door-to-door, alerting residents that there was an active search for two suspects.

There was meth found in the car, and it was discovered that the vehicle had been stolen.

Eugene Police credited alert residents for assisting in the efforts to find both outstanding suspects.
