Tiffin Residents Arrested Following Monday High Speed Chase

8/15/17 – 4:56 A.M.

Police arrested two Tiffin residents following a multi-county car chase Monday. Officers arrested 25-year-old Ryan Yoakum and 24-year-old Caroline Lantz in a wooded area east of Lima Monday afternoon. The State Highway Patrol says the two had outstanding warrants, and are facing charges stemming from the chase.

The incident started on the north side of Findlay just before 11 a.m. The suspects drove into Cass Township and then into Wood County before turning south down I-75. State Patrol troopers used a spike strip to slow the car down near Lima, and the suspects exited on State Route 81. They ditched their car east of the city near the Ottawa Metro Park and hid in a wooded area before their arrest.
