Photos: Suspects in custody following extensive search north of Streator

Two suspects are reported to be in custody following a search stretching from the area near Sandy Ford Bridge toward 16th Road and south towards Kangley — all north of Streator.

The suspects were said to have fled a traffic stop earlier Monday morning, according to the La Salle County Sheriff's Office.

Streator Police Department, the La Salle County Sheriff's Office and the Illinois State Police assisted in the search that also included drone equipment. The search started at about 1:30 a.m. Monday. Deputies said the search was not considered to be an "armed-and-dangerous situation."
