Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX – The Department of Public Safety is looking for a motorcyclist who led them on a high-speed chase on a Valley freeway and dropped a bag of drugs during the pursuit.

It started around 9 p.m. Friday on eastbound Interstate 10 at the downtown tunnel when a DPS officer tried to pull the man over.

He kept going and a chase ensued. At one point they reached over 90 mph.

DPS eventually gave up on the pursuit at the Loop 202 and Dobson Road, but the Phoenix police helicopter continued to follow the man to a Tempe apartment complex where he ditched the bike.

Officers have not found him but they reportedly know who he is.
