KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Two suspects have been arrested after a high-speed chase that started in eastern Jackson County, MO, on Monday morning.

Deputies followed a stolen vehicle into Johnson County, KS shortly before 9:30 a.m. Monday. 

The incident began in Lone Jack, MO, when two calls of suspicious activity were reported. 

Deputies responded to the area and attempted to make a stop for questioning. The stolen vehicle, a white SUV, fled the scene and began evasive driving. The deputies followed with the assistance of a helicopter.

The suspects continued into Kansas where the Johnson County Sheriff's Office, Lenexa Police Department and Kansas Highway Patrol gave their assistance in stopping the vehicle. 

The chase reportedly reached speeds of 100 mph. 

Lenexa deployed stop sticks and the vehicle eventually stopped along a wooded area off of K-10 at Cedar Creek Parkway.

One subject was taken into custody while another remained at large. K-9 officers located the subject not far from the abandoned vehicle and he was taken into custody without incident.

St. James Academy in Lenexa was on lockdown because of the ongoing suspect search.
