Residents of Lauderdale and Kemper Counties may have been witness to a high speed chase Tuesday afternoon. Around 5:30 p.m. an ongoing drug investigation led to the chase that started around Windsor and King Roads.
It eventually ran north on Highway 493 about ten miles into Kemper County. The chase got up to 96 miles per hour before the suspect fled the vehicle and surrendered to authorities in a church parking lot in Kemper County.
Officials with the East Mississippi Drug Task Force say charges against the suspect are pending. Several local agencies assisted the task force.
