ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY - Police said they took two men into custody after the pair led them on a chase. 

27-year-old Dwight Cox and 43-year-old Larry Bowman Jr. are accused of first leading police on a car chase, then a foot chase Friday.  Police said they caught the two, then found half an ounce of cocaine packaged to sell. 

Police said Bowman is from Virginia and was in the area just to sell drugs.  Bowman is also allegedly involved in the Corner Bar and Grille investigation.  The large scale probe found that more than $2 million worth of cocaine a year was funneled through the Altoona bar.  Police said Bowman had an outstanding warrant related to that investigation.
