      Person believed to be in stolen car wrecks in neighborhood

      Lawrence Muldrow,17, and Anthony Epps,18, have been charged following a police chase that ended in a crash in a neighborhood at the intersection of Chandler Circle and Jennifer Lane in Florence Thursday night.

      Officers tried to stop Muldrow for a traffic violation, but he kept going and led them on a chase, according to Lt. Compton with Florence police.

      The chase ended when Muldrow crashed the pickup, Compton said.

      Muldrow and Epps were thrown from the truck, but are expected to be OK.

      Compton says they ran into a wooded area and were later caught by police and deputies with the Florence County Sheriff's Office.

      Officers say the pickup they were in was stolen from Florence County.

      Muldrow is charged with Grand Larceny, Failure to Stop For a Blue Light, Reckless Driving and Resisting Arrest.

      Epps is charged with Grand Larceny and Resisting Arrest.

      They remain in custody at the Florence County Detention Center.
