— Authorities in Cumberland County are looking for two men who they say led them on a high-speed chase that ended with a crash into a house.

According to the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office, witnesses called 911 after they saw two men kicking in the front door of a home at 3000 Stoney Court in Hope Mills Tuesday morning. A deputy who was heading into work responded to the call and noticed two men loading the stolen items in their vehicle.

Authorities said the two men led the deputy on a high-speed chase through the area before they crashed their vehicle into a home at 3434 Whipperwill Lane. According to deputies, a deck and table valued at more than $1,000 were destroyed.

Investigators are looking for Danny Shelton, 21, of Fayetteville for questioning. Authorities said Shelton is the co-owner of the wrecked vehicle. Authorities have not yet released any information about the other individual.

If you have any information on Shelton's whereabouts, you are asked to contact the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office at 910-323-1500.
