(ABC 6 News) - Mower County Deputies were lead on an early morning chase Thursday after an apparent gas drive-off.

The suspect was driving a small U-Haul truck and led authorities south on Highway 56 before he was stopped at the intersection of Highway 218 and County Road 4, just south of the Austin Airport.

ABC 6 News's Dan Conradt reports authorities did deploy stop-sticks near that location, but it's unclear if the suspect drove over them.

He says two people were inside the U-Haul when it was stopped.

We'll pass on more information as it becomes available.
