Police chase 2 after cruisers stolen in Camden, Philly

(AP) - Authorities say a couple stole a New Jersey police car and led officers on a wild, two-state chase that included the theft of a second cruiser in Philadelphia.

Police there eventually charged Blake Bills and Shayna Sykes of Macungie, Pa. with offenses including driving under the influence and resisting arrest.

Authorities say the couple first commandeered a patrol car in Camden, N.J., after an officer made an unrelated traffic stop Tuesday. Police say the officer was struck as the suspects fled.

Authorities say Bills led police on a chase into Philadelphia, where officers managed to stop the vehicle and arrest him. But police say Sykes escaped and stole a Philadelphia cruiser.

After another chase, officers were able to stop and arrest her. It's unclear if they have lawyers.
