Nevada Highway Patrol troopers chased down 2 suspected burglars in a stolen truck overnight.

The truck eventually crashed near the post office located on Sunset Road.

NHP was able to catch one of the suspects, who is a female.

The person driving the pickup is still on the run.

NHP says that the pair was involved in a burglary near Jones Boulevard and Warm Springs Road, but it is not clear when that happened.

The chase and crash took place around midnight.
