A 4.5 mile high-speed pursuit in west-central Dallas County ended peacefully shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday when an eluding driver and one passenger, both from Perry, were detained at gunpoint by a Dallas County Deputy Sheriff.

From H Avenue the vehicle proceeded eastward on 260th Street, southward on Indian Avenue and eastward for a short distance on 270th Street before pulling into a driveway at 18775 270th St., a property owned by Steven and Joyce Venard of rural Adel, according to county records.
The occupants of the vehicle were taken into custody at 8:49 p.m. without further incident.
