A suspect is in custody following a multi-city pursuit Wednesday. 

The chase began in northwest Oklahoma City. The suspect, identified as 37-year-old Candice Powell, eventually entered onto Broadway Extension southbound from Memorial and Santa Fe. 

At one point the she was trapped between multiple police cruisers and a tractor-trailer but managed to escape and continue on. 


Powell drove through northeast Oklahoma City into Edmond. Oklahoma City ground police officers ended their chase of the suspect, and Air 1 continued to follow. Powell turned off the highway onto Edmond city streets where she appeared to make multiple attempts to get gas in the area, but fled after seeing a nearby police cruiser.   

The chase reached Logan County where deputies joined the pursuit. 

Powell drove through a construction area, but eventually made it back to city streets. From there, she drove onto a gravel road, then ran a stop sign causing her vehicle to go airborne and spin out. Deputies were able to block Powell's vehicle and take her into custody near Broadway and Forrest Hills Road.  

The Logan County sheriff told News 9 Powell did not have a license. Authorities also found a small amount of marijuana. 

She was booked into the Logan County Jail on complaints of felony charges, eluding and hitting a deputy vehicle. Authorities said she is also facing traffic charges out of Oklahoma City.
