OKLAHOMA CITY -- A warrant team from the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office arrested a pair of fugitives Thursday following a foot pursuit.

Deputies tracked Ashley Freeman, 23,  and Matthew Cratin, 28, to a house in the 10700 block of N.W. 35th St.  They had set up surveillance when the two suspects walked out of the house about 2 p.m.

Freeman was immediately taken into custody, but Cratin fled the scene on foot.  Oklahoma City Police officers assisted in setting up a perimeter, and Cratin was taken into custody after a K-9 found him hiding in a shed nearby.

Cratin was wanted on a warrant for first degree robbery, and Freeman was wanted on warrants for possession of drugs, and possession of an altered, forged, or counterfeited instrument. Both suspects have been booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center.
