— Wake County sheriff's deputies were searching for suspects who ran after a short vehicle chase on U.S. Highway 401 early Friday.

Phyllis Stephens, a spokeswoman for the Wake County Sheriff's Office, said that deputies attempted to stop a vehicle on U.S. 401 south of Raleigh. The driver didn't stop, and deputies engaged in a short chase.

The chase ended when the driver stopped on Ileagnes Road, Stephens said. The vehicle's occupants jumped and ran. They have not been apprehended.

Stephens said investigators determined that the vehicle had been stolen.
