MARION COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

Two people were arrested after a late night chase in Marion County, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

Marion County deputies were notified around 11:40 Saturday night that the Silverton Police Department was in pursuit of an SUV that was involved in an armed robbery in Tigard.

Silverton Police terminated the pursuit as the SUV left Silverton and headed toward Silver Falls State Park.

Marion County Deputies began following the SUV at a safe distance on Silver Falls Highway a short time later.

Deputies said they worked with other units that were ahead of the SUV who were setting up their spike strips.

After two spike strip deployments, deputies turned on their emergency lights in an attempt to stop the SUV.

Officials said the driver tried to drive off road but became stuck near Mill Creek Road Southeast and Golf Course Road Southeast near Aumsville.

Deputies were able to arrest 28-year-old Richard Clark, and 21-year-old Olivia Matheny without incident.

Matheny had an outstanding warrant for a parole violation, and was transferred to Tigard Police for their investigation.

Deputies said Clark was taken to a local hospital where he is being treated for what deputies believe is a drug overdose.

Once released, Clark will be booked in the Marion County Jail for a parole violation warrant, attempt to elude, reckless driving, and reckless endangering.
