NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. - Two people now face multiple felony charges connected to a police pursuit earlier this week.
New York State Police say Shaquan Shingledecker, 22, of Niagara Falls, NY, and Yariliss Flecha, 23, of Rochester, are charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a weapon, and numerous other offenses.
Troopers say the pair didn't stop when a Trooper attempted to pull them over on Niagara Falls Boulevard Thursday.
Shingledecker was the driver, and Flecha was his passenger, according to State Police. They say Shingledecker led police on a brief pursuit before he lost control and crashed into a home and fence.
Shingledecker and Flecha were taken to Erie County Medical Center to be treated. Both have since been released.
Troopers say they found packages of heroin and a loaded 9 mm handgun in the car.
