SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. – Two convicted felons were arrested early Thursday morning after leading deputies on a high-speed chase throughout two counties.

Mathew Sutton, 23, of North Port and Dustin Lindsay, 22, of Port Charlotte, are facing multiple charges after leading two SWFL county sheriff’s offices on a late night/early morning high-speed chase.

The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office attempted to pull the pair over just before midnight on Wednesday when they took off, according to the arrest reports.

A Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office deputy then spotted the vehicle and began to pursue the pair. The felons were traveling northbound on River Road near U.S. 41 when they got on I-75 South and accelerated over 100 miles per hour, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office.

Sutton and Lindsay tried to get away by turning around twice on the interstate, deputies say. The felon’s car eventually lost a tire and was disabled. Sutton, the driver, took off into woods and was caught by deputies using a K-9 and helicopter.

Lindsay, the passenger, was arrested without incident.

Deputies uncovered more than 40 rounds of live ammunition in the center console and back seat of the disabled car.

Both Sutton and Lindsay were previously convicted for suspended license, and drug related charges.

Sutton is charged with fleeing to elude, resisting arrest, driving while license suspended, violation of probation, and two counts of possession of ammunition by a convicted felon.

Lindsay is facing two counts of possession of ammunition by a convicted felon.

Both are currently in custody.
