Two men have been arrested after throwing contraband over the fence of a Yazoo County jail and then running from police.

WLBT reported that police say they saw the two men, throwing the contraband around 4 a.m. Thursday.

Deputies then attempted to catch them with a traffic stop but the men fled. They chased the pair for about half of a mile until they wrecked.  When the two got out of the car they ran and even tried to swim across a river. They were then captured.

The two men are now being charged with burglary, possession of contraband, malicious mischief, felony evading, and resisting arrest.

The manhunt of the two cousins lasted hours.
