A manhunt in Wichita Falls ended Thursday afternoon with six people behind bars.

The Wichita County Sheriff's Office said Deputies tried to pull over a two men and two women in a red Pontiac Sunfire around 11:30 a.m. for a traffic violation, but said the driver wouldn't stop.

Deputies were able to arrest the two women on the spot.

Deputies caught the third suspect around 1 p.m., and the fourth just before 2:30 p.m.

In the midst of the investigation, deputies caught another male and female suspect in connection to the mobile meth lab.
