A man and woman are in police custody after leading officers on a "slow-speed chase" early Wednesday morning.

Police were called to Barton's Boozery on Military Drive near Lackland AFB after two patrons said they were robbed at gunpoint as they left the bar. As the victims were speaking to officers, they told them that the suspects' car was driving by.

Police said they trailed the car and later turned on the lights and sirens to have the driver pull over. But the driver didn't. Though most suspects who decide to outrun the law tend to drive at high speeds, police say the woman behind the wheel drove at speeds of about 30 mph and even stopped at red lights.

The woman eventually pulled over near the Zarzamora and Centennial intersection, roughly eight miles from the robbery.

The man and woman, whose information has not been released, were taken into custody.
