Sun City, AZ (ABC15) -- This story involves two suspects and one of the best high-speed chases you're likely to see.

We imagine the lunch hours of many people were interrupted Thursday after word that two llamas were on the loose in Sun City. Yes, you read that correctly.

The two daring criminals disregarded red lights and recklessly wove in and out of traffic before being caught just before 1:30 p.m.

An ABC15 viewer said the animals initially got loose near 103rd Avenue and Grand during a demonstration.

Air15 video showed the llamas evading capture for nearly an hour, dodging captors and running along neighborhood streets before eventually being caught.

They are now back in the possession of their owners.
