A car chase has ended with over 80 charges, according to a release from Airdrie RCMP.

On Sunday, January 21, three people led police on a chase through Airdrie and Calgary in a white Ford F150.

It involved a truck, which was pulling a trailer behind it. Police say the suspects attempted to detach the trailer from the vehicle during a stop along Highway 2, and they were unsuccessful.

But the trailer later came off of the truck as it was driving and rolled across the highway.

The chase continued into Airdrie, where police had set up a spike belt on the road. The spikes successfully punctured the vehicle tires, and when the truck came to a stop the three occupants fled on foot.

According to police, two of the suspects were quickly apprehended, though one continued to flee. Police dogs found the suspect hiding under a deck a short while later, and discovered that he was high on drugs and carrying a knife.

Police also found a loaded sawed-off shotgun that had been thrown into another yard during the chase.

The Airdrie RCMP identifies the suspects as 32-year-old Mitchell Hall, 27-year-old Tyrell Noskiye, and 22-year-old Darby Benedict.

All three have been charged on counts of resisting a peace officer, possession of break-in instruments, possession of firearm in motor vehicle, possession of weapon obtained by crime, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, and careless use of firearm, to name only a few.

Hill was charged with a total of 59 offences, Noskiye with 16, and Benedict with nine.

Hall and Noskiye both remain in custody until their court dates on February 1 and 8, respectively, though Benedict was released until her court date on January 25.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the Airdrie RCMP by calling 403-945-7200, or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-8477, or online through their website.
