Charges have been filed against the burglary suspects who were the subject of a manhunt Saturday. 

Chad Setunsky and Ashley Niewerowski have been charged with burglary, theft, criminal damage to property, fleeing an officer, and first degree recklessly endangering safety. 

At 3:43 a.m. Saturday, a Marinette County deputy stopped at the Corner Convenience store at the intersection of County W and Parkway Road in the Town of Stephenson after he saw that store had been broken into. The doors were open and he noticed that an ATM machine was taken from the business. 

As another officer was responding, he noticed two cars speeding in the opposite direction of the store. He began following them and attempted to stop the cars. The vehicles then led the officer on a chase. 

According to the criminal complaint, the driver of one of the vehicles started shooting at officers during the chase. That vehicle eventually drove off the road and crashed into a pole. The two inside were said to have exited the pickup truck and ran into the woods. 

Officers noticed that the plates on the truck were stolen. Inside the truck they found a crow bar, sledge hammer,  and battery powered tools. They also found small pieces of the ATM inside the truck. 

The ATM was later found but the money was taken out of it. 

Surveillance footage showed the two breaking into the store and stealing the ATM.

Niewerowski was arrested shortly before 1:00 p.m. on Sunday near County C in the Town of Athelstane.

Setunsky was arrested around 4:35 p.m. in a cabin south of County C.
