An Albuquerque man is facing multiple felony charges following a 15-mile police chase that began near Ilfeld and ended with a crash in Chapelle.

Pasqual R. Valenzuela Jr., 22, appeared in San Miguel Magistrate Court Dec. 27 to face several charges, including auto theft, fleeing law enforcement and possession of a controlled substance, after leading police on a chase in a stolen car, according to an affidavit for arrest filed in San Miguel County Magistrate Court.

Valenzuela was later arrested in Albuquerque for breaking into a home and refusing to come out for police.
