CINCINNATI (CBSMiami/AP) – Three people from South Florida who led police on a high speed chase in southwest Ohio have been taken into custody.

Being held in Warren County Jail pending arraignments Thursday on fleeing and eluding charges were Courtney Coney, 29, of Plantation; Stanley Jacques, 24, of Fort Lauderdale and Emily Freeman, 21, of Coral Springs. Police are looking for a fourth person who was in the vehicle which has been linked to possible criminal activity in the Detroit area.

Police outside Cincinnati said the Lincoln MKZ topped 120 mph during a chase that ended when they used devices to deflate the vehicle’s tires Tuesday evening. Troopers said the Ohio State Highway Patrol began pursuing the vehicle in western Ohio’s Auglaize County some 100 miles away more than an hour earlier.

“The pursuit was terminated a short time later due to reckless and aggressive driving by the suspect vehicle,” Highway Patrol Lt. Anne Ralston said.

Patrol cruisers from several posts along southbound Interstate 75 took up the pursuit but stopped for safety reasons.

A Hamilton County sheriff’s helicopter followed overhead as the car turned onto Interstate 275 north of Cincinnati. It exited, almost hitting a police cruiser, and was driving “all over the road” after returning to the interstate, according to a Sharonville police report. After the tires were deflated, the vehicle turned onto a side road and the helicopter crew reported seeing four occupants running away.
