Police are searching for a man who led them on a chase through parts of St. Joseph and Marshall Counties Tuesday morning.

North Liberty Police tell FOX28 they believe the suspect is Aaron Egger of Walkerton. Police say he was involved in a hit-and-run over the weekend. He was wanted for drug possession.

Police say a North Liberty officer spotted someone they believed to be Egger this morning in the area of State Road 23 and Riley Road. Once Egger noticed he was being followed, he sped off, where police then engaged their lights. The chase then went through county roads near Walkerton.

North Liberty Police called off the chase when high speeds and icy road conditions made it too dangerous. It was later picked up by Marshall County Police when the suspect entered Marshall County. Dispatchers say the suspect exited the truck in the area of Quince and 6th Road, then got back in the vehicle and took off again.

Marshall County Police reported a woman was also in the vehicle. She was picked up by State Police and brought to North Liberty Police. She was questioned and later released. She says she asked the suspect, Egger, to release her and he refused.

North Liberty Police say Marshall County officers have located the vehicle involved in the chase, and it's currently in their custody. State Police along with Marshall County Police are still looking for Egger.

Egger is being charged by North Liberty Police with resisting law enforcement, criminal confinement, and criminal recklessness due to the passenger inside the vehicle. Indiana State Police along with Marshall County Police are charging him with resisting arrest and criminal recklessness.
