Formal charges are now pending by the Audrain County Prosecuting Attorney after an incident where 2 people are being accused of stealing from a Mexico business.
Public Safety responded to the 700 block of West Jackson on Saturday morning around 10:45, where they say 2 suspects were fleeing from employees of the business.
The 2 suspects reportedly got into a vehicle and hit an uninvolved parked vehicle while driving away.
Officers with the Centralia Police Department stopped the suspect vehicle and Centralia Police and the Missouri Highway Patrol assisted Mexico Public Safety with the investigation.
Both suspects were eventually released.
The investigation is ongoing.
