Three people are facing charges after leading police on a car chase through north Winnipeg.
It started Tuesday morning just before 2:30 a.m. when officers tried to stop a Cadillac on Salter Street near Boyd Avenue in the North End.
The car drove off at a high rate of speed and, in an effort to evade police, had little regard for public safety.
The police helicopter, Air1, became involved and kept an eye on the vehicle, directing ground patrols to its location.
Police caught up to it in the 100 block of Inksbrook Drive, in the city's Tyndall Park area, where five people jumped out and tried to run off.
Using Air1, along with canine and patrol units, the police tracked all five people and took them into custody.
A 40-year-old man is facing the charges related to fleeing police and driving while disqualified.
A 23-year-old woman is charged with public mischief and a 36-year-old man has been charged with possession of methamphetamine, resisting a peace officer and breach of probation.
The two other occupants are not facing charges at this time.
