Two people are in jail after police responded to three separate car chases in three separate parts of town.

The first chase started near 101st and Skelly Drive with the driver of a U-Haul truck driving down the wrong side of the road.

Officers say when one officer tried to pull the truck over, the driver took off leading police on a several mile long chase before it finally came to an end.

After a short chase, police said Michael Delaney stopped and was arrested. At this time, they say they're not sure if the U-Haul and the things inside the truck were stolen.

About an hour later, police responded to another chase near 46th Street North and Garrison.

This chase also started with a traffic stop, but the driver again took off.

Officers said Joshua Smith eventually got out of the car and tried to run from them, but police later found and arrested him. 

The third chase police responded to was around the 31st and Memorial area. We're waiting to learn more information from police on that one.
