Vehicle, foot chase leads to drug arrest

THOMASVILLE — A man who attempted to outrun lawmen in a vehicle and on foot Sunday afternoon was captured, jailed and charged with a number of offenses.

A Thomas County Sheriff’s Office deputy attempted a routine traffic stop on a Chevrolet Caprice on the north bypass.

“The driver decided not to stop,” Kevin Lee, Thomas County/Thomasville Narcotics/Vice Division commander, said.

The vehicle accelerated, traveled toward Old Albany Road on the bypass and turned onto Holland Street. A second deputy arrived to assist.

With two deputies in pursuit, the Caprice turned onto Henderson Street.

“The vehicle then went to make a right turn, when a deputy was able to force the vehicle into a ditch,” Lee said.

The driver, Antwann Sharrod Hall, got out of the car and ran, pursued on foot by the officers.

Once Hall was captured and officers returned to the Chevrolet, a glass jar containing three bags of marijuana was found in the car.

Hall, 25, 510 Old Albany Road, is charged with marijuana possession with intent to distribute, attempting to elude police officer, reckless driving and a number of other traffic offenses.

“He has been arrested in the past for drugs,” the commander said.

Senior reporter Patti Dozier can be reached at (229) 226-2400, ext. 1820.
