Man who led authorities on high-speed chase through five counties now facing additional charges

37-year-old Matthew Guilford, of Brookfield, Missouri

The felon that reportedly led law enforcement on a multi-county pursuit of a pickup truck beginning in Linn County and ending at Marshall Tuesday faces five additional felony charges in Linn County.

Matthew Guilford of Brookfield has been charged with first-degree assault or attempt of serious physical injury or special victim, armed criminal action, resisting arrest, detention, or stop by fleeing—creating a substantial risk of serious injury or death to any person, resisting or interfering with an arrest for a felony, and possession of a controlled substance except 35 grams or less of marijuana or synthetic cannabinoid. No bond is listed on those charges.

Authorities reported Guilford was wanted on an arrest warrant from Linn County for the felonies of possession of a controlled substance and trafficking drugs and on a federal parole warrant on an original charge of felon in possession of a firearm.

Bond on those Linn County charges was set at $50,000 cash only, and no bond was authorized on the federal parole warrant.

Guilford is scheduled for arraignment on all of the Linn County charges on Friday at 11 am.

Linn County law enforcement received assistance from eight other law enforcement agencies for the pursuit that traveled through five counties.
