Two Florida men are in custody after Ohio State Troopers say they stole a vehicle and fled. The incident started last night in a rest area in Guernsey County. According to the patrol, when a trooper with the Cambridge post checked a license plate on a '99 Chevy Sierra, the report showed the vehicle was stolen. Two men were reportedly asleep inside the car. As troopers tried to wake up the men the driver of the vehicle fled eastbound on Interstate 70 to Belmont County. Sgt. Greenwood with the St. Clairsville post says as the driver approached the Belmont/Bethesda exit he jumped out of the moving vehicle. Sgt. Greenwood says the two suspects are being held in the Belmont County Jail. Gerard Thomas of Florida is facing one count of receiving stolen property, one count of felonious assault of a police officer and one count of felony fleeing and eluding. The second suspect is Richard Fellion, also of Florida. He's facing one count of receiving stolen property.
