Police: heroin/meth fueled fugitives arrested after wild chase

VIDEO: Couple allegedly lead police...

STROUD TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Authorities in Monroe County say two fugitives were high on meth and heroin when they led police on a wild chase through a private community.

Authorities say 24-year-old Robert Connors and 19-year-old Anyssa Kravchenko fled when police tried to break up a drug deal in Stroud Township, Friday.

Both were eventually caught but not before police say Connors smashed his car through the back gate of Penn Estates, drove around in circles, and crashed into the woods.

Police say the suspects admitted to being on a three-day "bender" of meth and heroin use.

Authorities say Connors had been on the run from police for six months on charges related to a kidnapping and robbery in Monroe County.

Kravchenko was wanted for a violation in Warren County, New Jersey.
