(SOUTH FAIRMONT, OH) --

Elvis L. Artley, 47, driver, charged with reckless operation, fleeing & eluding, and drug trafficking

David L. Baskin, 25, passenger, charged with drug trafficking

Previously:

A drug informant is shot at after a deal went bad Wednesday night in South Fairmont.

That sparked a high speed chase through several West Side neighborhoods.

The three suspects were caught and are locked up at the Hamilton County jail.

It all started near Esmonde Street at about 6 p.m. Wednesday. A woman working with police was in the neighborhood to buy drugs.

When the suspects arrived at the set-up, they immediately started shooting and fired through the woman's windshield. She was acting as a police informant.

Authorities say the weapon they recovered was a Magnum 357 that only had one round left.

The three men took off in their car. One of them jumped from the moving vehicle during the chase.

Police caught up with all three after about 20 minutes.

K-9 units searched for drugs along with the way. Authorities believe the guys threw them out the window.

Police also say it's was good that the Vortex and violent crime unit was standing by. If not, the suspects that are now locked up would have gotten away.
