CAMERON PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Three Lake Charles residents were arrested on drug charges Saturday following a high-speed chase that spanned two parishes.

The chase started on Gulf Highway in Cameron Parish and ended on private property off of Greathouse Road in Calcasieu Parish.

Cameron Parish Chief Deputy Chris Savoie said they received a call about a minor two-vehicle crash around 2:30 p.m. The driver of a red 2005 Toyota Highlander, who deputies said caused the accident, fled the scene.

At 2:40 p.m., deputies located the vehicle on La. 384, just past Grand Lake High. Savoie said the driver ignored the deputies' attempt to stop him and a high-speed chase ensued.

The driver eventually stopped in a field off Greathouse Road, jumped out and fled on foot. He was arrested by Cameron deputies after a brief pursuit. Two passengers were also in the SUV.

Savoie said deputies found a handgun, synthetic marijuana and prescription pills in and around the vehicle.

The driver, identified as 30-year-old Marshall Smith, was arrested on outstanding felony warrants in Calcasieu Parish. According to records from the Calcasieu Correctional Center, Smith had been charged with drug possession with intent to distribute and is being held on a $30,000 bond. Charges of aggravated flight from an officer, resisting arrest, possession of synthetic marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of Schedule IV CDS and illegal possession of a handgun are pending in Cameron Parish.

The passengers, 20-year-old Trey Rosamore and 32-year-old Rachel Spikes, were both booked in the Cameron Parish Jail on charges of possession of synthetic marijuana and possession of a handgun.

Savoie said the investigation is ongoing.

Investigators include: detective Randy Hunt and deputies Adam Precht, Ronnie Benoit, Brian Doxey and Benji Primeaux.
