LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Two men are in custody and authorities are searching for a third after a high-speed chase ended with the suspects crashing off of the Interstate 10 in Lake Charles, authorities said.

According to records from the Calcasieu Correctional Center, Elijah J. Alexander, 20, and Anthony Williams, 22, were arrested early Wednesday morning.

Alexander, of Lafayette, was charged with speeding, reckless operation, aggravated flight from an officer, resisting an officer, possession of stolen firearms and possession of stolen things over $1,500.

Williams, of Orange, Texas, was charged with speeding, driving with a suspended license, reckless operation, aggravated flight from an officer, resisting an officer, marijuana possession with intent to distribute, possession of stolen firearms and possession of stolen things over $1,500, illegal possession of a weapon in presence of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bond is pending for both men.

Westlake Police Chief Michael Dickerson said an officer attempted to stop an eastbound vehicle for speeding on Interstate 10.

"The subject refused to stop and sped up," Dickerson said. "The vehicle got off at the Lakeshore Drive Exit, made the circle and crashed at the beach. Three subjects bailed out of the vehicle."

Alexander and Williams were captured while Westlake Police are searching for the third suspect.

Dickerson said the vehicle was reported stolen out of Orange, Texas.
