Two people are jailed in Nebraska after a high-speed chase through the southwest Iowa on Tuesday. Iowa State Trooper Scott Miller spotted the suspects in a stolen S-U-V near the Mills County town of Glenwood. He says they immediately drove through a farm field and he couldn’t keep up. Other troopers took up the chase.The suspects are identified as 26-year-old Benjamin Toren and 23-year-old Lynette Robins. Toren was at the wheel and allegedly rammed the trooper’s car and led pursuers across wetlands and farm fields and down railroad tracks until the S-U-V bogged down in a muddy field near Plattsmouth, Nebraska. Toren and Robins are jailed in Cass County, Nebraska, and authorities are still deciding on charges. The two are also wanted in Minnesota and South Dakota on charges ranging from robbery and auto theft to parole violation.
