New Jersey authorities slapped a Philadelphia couple with multiple charges Wednesday for leading police on a high-speed pursuit with two stolen cruisers in two states.

For Blake Bills, 24, and Shayna Sykes, 23, Tuesday's pursuit marked the end of a crime spree that included several stolen vehicles as they attempted to buy heroin in Camden, N.J., reports

The spree began before the Macungie, Pa., couple stole a police cruiser in Camden Tuesday and led police on an interstate car chase into Pennsylvania. Bills and Sykes were attempting to steal a second civilian car, after the first one had broken down, when they spotted a Camden Police officer making a traffic stop.

Bills and Sykes sped off in the cruiser, taking it down I-676 before doubling back and heading over the Ben Franklin Bridge. Philadelphia Police stopped them in North Philadelphia. Sykes broke away from officers and jumped behind the wheel of a Philadelphia PD cruiser, leading officers through the city's narrow streets before she was taken into custody.

Bills is charged with attempted murder, carjacking, eluding, aggravated assault, and assault by auto. Sykes is charged with conspiracy to commit theft of a car and joyriding. They also face charges in Philadelphia.
