PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A narcotics investigation led to a high speed chase and multi-vehicle crash in Pearl. Pearl Police Chief Ben Schuler says officers were investigating possible methamphetamine activity at the Southern Garden Mobile Home Park on Highway 80.

Chief Schuler says two men attempted to run over officers as they tried to block them in at that location. They escaped in a white Chevy Impala and the police pursuit began.

Police say an 18 wheeler and at least two other vehicles were involved when the suspects crashed. No injuries were reported.

Investigators say one man taken into custody is a convicted felon in possession of methamphetamines and a couple of firearms.

"He came down through here hit an 18 wheeler, hit the curb and started flipping his car," said Chief Schuler. "Then when the car got stopped, did jump out of the car and try to run. My guys did tackle them so they are in custody."

The names of the two men taken into custody have not been released.
