DELAWARE, Ohio (WTVN) -- Two people have been arrested after a chase and crash on U.S. 23 south of Delaware.

It happened around noon Tuesday at the intersection of Ohio Health Blvd. Delaware County Sheriff's deputies deployed stop sticks to end the chase. Inside a stolen van they found Scott Delano Thomas, a man wanted for robbing a Huntington Bank branch in Lewis Center on Saturday.

The vehicle involved in the robbery was found at West Broad and Belvidere Streets over the weekend, but Thomas, had not yet been located.

Thomas was spotted at Wal-Mart on U.S. 23 and that's when the chase began.

The second person arrested was not immediately identified.

ODOT says one lane of U.S. 23 has been opened in each direction and the entire highway should re-open soon.
