Two Captured after High Speed Chase Through the City and County


A man and a woman are in custody after a high-speed chase through downtown Vicksburg and the south part of Warren County.

At approximately 10:10 p.m. Wednesday, Vicksburg Police, including narcotics officers, attempted to make a traffic stop at Clay and Hope Street. The driver failed to stop and fled with police in close pursuit. The driver went north to Grove Street and then traveled west on Grove Street to Washington Street. The chase continued on Washington Street south through town to Warrenton Road and continued to Hwy. 61 South.

The cars traveled at a high rate of speed to Redbone Road, then Jeff Davis, then Fisher Ferry south to Fonsylvania. From there they sped up Fonsylvania to Halls Ferry, then to Nailor Road where Sheriff’s deputies were waiting. The deputies joined the chase continuing west on Nailor, back to Fisher Ferry south to the area of Grange Hall where it meets Fisher Ferry.

At that triangular intersection, the fleeing truck ran out of gas. The male driver abandoned the vehicle on the lot of the empty structure in the triangle of Grange Hall and Fisher Ferry. He then fled on foot into the neighboring woods to the northeast.

The female passenger stayed in the vehicle and was immediately and safely apprehended.

Thor, a Vicksburg Police K-9, tracked the suspect through the woods to Front Royal Street where the dog trapped the suspect inside a resident’s screened-in back porch, and police apprehended him. The subject will be charged with multiple felonies. The female subject is being held pending further investigation.

This video has been shared on social media of the arrest at the empty structure in the intersection of Grange Hall and Fisher Ferry:
