The 19-minute chase that reached speeds of 80 mph began when Casey Ervin, 28, turned from Main Street onto Old Springfield Road just after 3 p.m., London police Sgt. Keith Akers said.

A London police officer began following the Land Rover when it went way left of center after the turn, Akers said. The driver pulled over for a few seconds, then sped west along London Plattsburg Road, crossed state Route 54 and continued on London Plattsburg Road.

Clark County Sheriff’s deputies assisted and they, along with London police, stopped the SUV in the 6800 block of Plattsburg Road in South Charleston, Clark County.

Ervin was taken into custody there. A female passenger, identified as his girlfriend, was released, Akers said.

Ervin has been booked into the Tri-County Regional Jail in Mechanicsburg on several charges that include felony failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer, misdemeanor driving with a suspended license, and at least three counts of aggravated drug possession out of Champaign County.

Akers said Ervin’s address is listed “at large” and he is known to stay anywhere between Hillsboro, Springfield and London.

Akers also said police are continuing to investigate whether Ervin owns the vehicle he was driving.
