Two robbery suspects are in custody after an armed robbery in Ellis.  Around 6:40 p.m. Tuesday night, the Casey’s General Store just off of I-70 was robbed by two men.

Witnesses were able to provide a vehicle description, and Hays police spotted the car near the Highway 183 bypass west of Hays. Police say a chase started, and the suspects hit a guard rail.

Both men fled on foot. Thirty officers, four dogs and the Kansas Highway Patrol plane responded to search for the suspects.

Police say Shannon Smith was found around 8:30 p.m. in a drainage ditch along I-70. He had a warrant out of Alabama. Then around 11 p.m., Jessie Holland was located hiding in a KDOT vehicle near the scene. Both are in the Ellis County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
