Two Fort Payne residents were arrested on Tuesday afternoon after a vehicle and foot pursuit.
Investigators Brent Snead, Michael Green and Chief Investigator Josh Summerford attempted to stop a vehicle near McCord’s Crossroads, when the pursuit began.
The driver turned onto County Road 571 near the Spring Creek Fire Department and wrecked and that’s when three individuals fled on foot.
Investigators apprehended two of the suspects, after a brief foot chase. Bobby J. Townson, 34, and Whittney C. Davis, 26, of Fort Payne were arrested and charged with attempting to elude.
Townson will be transferred to the DeKalb County Jail to face existing warrants for drug charges there. Cherokee County deputies, Centre Police officers, a tracking dog from Floyd County, Georgia, and a helicopter from the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency searched for the third suspect, Jeremy L. Justice, 33, of Fort Payne, who remains at large.
In addition to the charges in Cherokee County, Justice faces charges in Jackson and DeKalb Counties. Sheriff Shaver requests if you have information on Jeremy Justice to please call the Sheriff’s Office anonymous tip line at 256-927-9999.
