DEL CITY, Oklahoma -

Two men and a woman suspected of burglarizing a home led law enforcement officers on a high-speed pursuit through several cities in the metro Friday afternoon.

Just before 5 p.m. Friday, two Oklahoma County Sheriff's deputies were at the intersection of Britton Road and N. Luther Road in Harrah when they noticed a white Chevrolet Tahoe pulling a flatbed trailer.

Just moments after the trailer drove through the intersection, a witness alerted the deputies that the people in the SUV, later identified as 24-year-old Wesley Kidder, 23-year-old Bethany Hightower, and 23-year-old Curtis Spencer, were seen burglarizing a home in the 11000 block of N. Dobbs in Harrah.

The deputies attempted to stop the SUV at Britton and Indian Meridian Road in Jones. However, the driver of the SUV refused to stop and took off at a high rate of speed.

At one point, the SUV was recorded driving more than 110 mph. During the pursuit, one of the suspects unhooked the trailer from the vehicle while it was moving at Post Road and Lejean Drive in Midwest City.

Deputies say they terminated the pursuit due to the fact that the driver was driving into oncoming lanes, and even crashed into a pole. They were able to keep track of the suspect vehicle through local news coverage from helicopters, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The pursuit ended after the suspects crashed the SUV in the area of Reno and Sunnylane in Del City.

The suspects took off running on foot but were quickly apprehended by law enforcement officers. Officers had to taser one of the suspects to get him under control.

Kidder is facing charges of second degree burglary, larceny of a trailer, eluding a deputy, driving under the influence of drugs (meth,) reckless driving, and failure to stop at a roadblock.

Hightower will be charged with second degree burglary and larceny of a trailer.

Spencer also faces charges of second degree burglary and larceny of a trailer. He had an outstanding warrant for violation of a deferred sentence.

The three suspects were transported to the hospital to be checked out for their injuries. They will be booked into the Oklahoma County detention center.

Police were able to confiscate a number of drugs and paraphernalia along the pursuit.
