BILOXI -- Police were assisting federal marshals in the arrest of a fugitive at Treasure Bay Casino when a man and a woman jumped in a car and fled, leading police on a two-city pursuit that ended with the couple's capture in woods off U.S. 49 north of Gulfport.

The car ran out of gas near the Mississippi Department of Transportation Office, where police said the couple got out and ran east into woods just north of Lewis Trailer Sales.Within 10 minutes, about 4:50 p.m., a K-9 team caught the couple in the woods.Police arrested Crepple on a false pretense charge and a felony probation warrant. She is held with no bond at the Harrison County jail.Helmert said the man with her was injured during the capture.
