On March 7, 2013, at approximately 10:55 am, the Idaho State Police was advised of two escapees from Great Falls, Montana. They were believed to be headed into Idaho in a stolen Ford F250 pickup.

A vehicle matching the description was reported involved in a gas skip at Macks Inn in Island Park around 11:25 am, and was located by a trooper at 12:10 pm on US highway 20 milepost 389, at the Yale-Kilgore and US 20 interchange. The suspects fled heading west leading law enforcement on a high speed pursuit. Spikes were set up at milepost 378 which the suspects were able to avoid and continued west on US 20. Spikes were set up at milepost 362 but just prior to that location, the suspects pulled over to the shoulder and were taken into custody without incident.

Jerron M. Mitchell-Fuller, 22, of Glendive, Montana and Christopher L. Etheridge, 28, of Billings, Montana, face charges of eluding, possession of stolen property, petit theft, and Etheridge will be cited for fail to purchase a drivers license.

The Idaho State Police was assisted by the Ashton Police Department, the St. Anthony Police Department, the Fremont County Sheriff and the Madison County Sheriff.

Photos will be released by Fremont County.
