Joseph Terrell Kelly has been identified as the subject taken into custody during Thursday’s pursuit along Interstate 20.
At around 11:45 a.m. on Thursday, Clinton Police Department notified the Warren County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) that an officer was in pursuit of a stolen vehicle and about to cross the county line. The tag on the vehicle, a 2008 Cadillac SUV, came back as stolen out of Jackson.
Warren County deputies were staged at the exits, in case the driver decided to exit the interstate.
A few minutes before noon, units with the Mississippi Highway Patrol and the WCSO managed to stop the vehicle at the 12 mile marker, about a mile from where first responders and Highway Patrol were working the scene of an overturned 18-wheeler. Kelly was taken into custody.
Kelly appeared in court on Friday and was given a $10,000 bond and is charged with receiving stolen property.
