A man and woman are facing several charges following a high-speed chase in eastern Montana and western North Dakota Saturday afternoon.

The McKenzie County Sheriff's Department reports speeds exceeded 100 miles per hour

Both were charged with Class Double A-Felony Possession of Meth with Intent to Deliver with Aggravating Factors, as well as Class C Felony Firearm Possession by a Convicted Felon.

The Class Double-A Felony carries a maximum life-in-prison sentence.

There were no injuries in the chase.
