The suspects in the theft, Matthew E. Williams, 33, and Brayden C. Glenn, 19, left the scene in a 2007 GMC Yukon. Police attempted to pull over the vehicle, but Williams, who was driving, refused to stop.
Williams drove east on Caldwell Boulevard, heading into Nampa and turned south onto West Karcher Road. Near North Midway Road, Williams left the road and got stuck in a field.
