MURRAY -- Two fugitives from Wyoming who police considered armed and dangerous have been arrested in Utah.

Officers arrested Benjamin Schneider and Casey Johnson around midnight Sunday following a chase earlier in the evening that began in Taylorsville and ended in Murray.

During the pursuit, the fugitives rammed a police car, crashed into a dead end, and then took off running behind a Murray apartment complex near 6500 South just west of State Street.

They now face a slew of additional charges in Utah.

Jim Phelps of the U.S. Marshal Service/JCAT said, "During the course of that investigation we learned some information that they're possibly involved in a home invasion that occurred here in the last week or so."

A woman in the car, Ashley Aguilar, was also arrested. The search continues for a fourth suspect, Jonathan Rogers.
