(KXXV) -

Three people who led deputies on a high-speed chase Tuesday night were still on the run early Wednesday afternoon.

Hill County Chief Deputy R.D. White said a deputy pulled a driver over on the northbound I-35 service road in Hillsboro about 10:05 p.m. Tuesday because there was no lighting on the license plate and the brake lights were defective.

As the deputy returned to his cruiser to do a check on the three people in the car, White said the driver took off.

A pursuit began, reaching speeds faster than 100 mph. 

Somewhere near the Lake Shore Drive exit on I-35, the occupants threw narcotics out of the window, White said. McLennan County sheriff's deputies eventually recovered about 24 grams of methamphetamine.

The driver then exited I-35 near the Moody area, and deputies lost sight of the vehicle, White said.

Shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday, McLennan County sheriff's deputies and Moody police officers spotted the vehicle parked outside of a home. The residents of the home did not know the owner of the car nor were they aware there was a car parked outside, White said.

Deputies believe there are more drugs in the car, so they're getting a search warrant, he said.

White said they believe they know the identities of the occupants, two men and one woman, of the vehicle. He believes one of the men is from Bell County and may have some warrants.

The incident is under investigation.
