Two arrests were made in a Rogers County cornfield Saturday.

"Officers Tommy Parker and David Carpenter were dispatched to Pryor Walmart on report of a shoplifter," said Pryor Police Department's Sgt. Doug Barham.

Barham said there were two individuals involved:

Destiny Winnick, 26, and Seth Coffman, 25.

Barham said Winnick was the shoplifter and was driving the vehicle.

Officer Parker attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle, which then fled and started the pursuit.

The pursuit went through Mayes County and included Pryor Police Department, Mayes County Sheriff's Office, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Chouteau Police Department, Grand River Dam Authority Police and Rogers County Sheriff's Office.

"It ended in a cornfield in Inola, in Rogers County, after the suspects tried fleeing in a cornfield and mowing over thousands of dollars worth of corn to try to hide. Officers pursued them on foot and the two were arrested," Barham said, adding that the pursuit ended at 424 and 590 Roads. "There were shots fired by Coffman, he fired four to five shots out of the passenger window. Nobody was hurt and no vehicles were hit."

The two are facing possible charges of eluding, petit larceny, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, shooting with intent to kill and driving under the influence of drugs.

Barham said methamphetamine and paraphernalia were found in the vehicle and in Coffman's pocket.

"He is also facing charges of bringing contraband into a jail," Barham said.

In Mayes County District Court bond was set at $500,000 each.
