The passengers were identified as Kaden Alonzo Jones, 17, and Brandon Deshawn Lewis, 18 of San Angelo, and Alexis Michelle Tijerina. 23, of Fort Worth.

Four people led law enforcement officers on a high speed chase through two counties while throwing drugs out of the window, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

DPS said a state trooper tried to stop a Dodge Charger on Saturday in Lampasas County. But the driver hit the gas and took off.

As the car crossed into Mills County, a second trooper on US-183 noticed what appeared to be narcotics being tossed out of the vehicle.

The chase continued through Goldthwaite, with more drugs out the window, and then east on US-84 towards Waco.

It came to an end when a deputy with the Mills County Sheriff's Office used spike strips to deflate the tires.

DPS said the driver and three passengers ran into a pasture where they were arrested.

The driver was identified as Keelan Ali Jones. 17, of San Angelo.
