(WBNG) -- Two people were arrested after a police chase which started in New York ended in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, authorities say.

Pennsylvania State Police say a police pursuit began with a vehicle wanted in connection with an armed robbery investigation in Broome County.

Troopers say a driver, 30-year-old Derrick Svenson, jumped out of the vehicle and ran away, but was arrested shortly after.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, Svenson and the other person in the car, 31-year-old Jenifer Griffith, both from Binghamton, face multiple charges, including drug charges.
