FULTON COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Two people were taken into custody after officers searched a cornfield during a foot chase on Saturday.

Robert Forrester of Fulton was charged with parole violation for felony offenses from Kentucky and fleeing and evading police on foot, first degree.

Kimberly S Fontano of Hardin was charged with hindering prosecution or apprehension, second degree.

It all started when the Fulton County, Kentucky Sheriff's Office performed a search warrant Saturday at a home on Hwy 239 for possible drug activity. Two people had felony charges against them.

During a search of the home, officers say no drug activity or the two suspects were not found.

According to the sheriff's office, the two people of interest had been seen walking south towards the state line.

Deputies went to the area and were able to detain one person. The second person fled into a bean and cornfield.

A K-9 Unit from the Mayfield Police Department was brought to the scene to track the person.

Later, that person came out and surrendered to officers.

The first person that was detained was released at the scene, because the State of Arkansas would not extradite from Kentucky.

A female at the home was taken into custody after it was learned that she had texted those on the run, and told them authorities were looking for them.

Both Fontano and Forrester were booked into the Fulton County Detention Center.

The sheriff's office was assisted by the Mayfield Police Department and K-9 (Brent Farmer), Constable Doug Bradley, the Fulton County Dispatch Center and Fulton Police Department.
