WATERTOWN, S.D.–Codington County deputies arrested three women Sunday morning following a vehicle pursuit on Interstate 29.

Sheriff Brad Howell says just after 10 a.m., a deputy attempted to stop a vehicle in the southeast portion of the county near the Clear Lake exit. The vehicle was registered to a Sioux Falls man wanted on a parole violation.

The driver of the car fled northbound.

Spike strips were placed across the highway and the car eventually became disabled and was stopped in the median of the Interstate near Watertown.

Deputies found eight grams of meth in the vehicle, along with several items of drug paraphernalia.

They arrested the driver, 42 year-old Syringa May of Sioux Falls (pictured),  and her two passengers, 42 year-old Annie Freudig of Crooks and 50 year-old Liza Thomas-Wade of Aberdeen.

All three are facing drug charges and were booked into the Codington County Detention Center.
