Intense High-speed Police Chase ends with 5 juveniles arrest. Deputies were alerted by our citizens of multiple suspects entering cars in the Evans Farms Subdivision. Deputies were able to obtain surveillance video from our great citizens and put out a lookout to surrounding agencies. Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office units near our county line attempted to stop the two vehicles and, yes again, both fled and of course FCSO pursued both vehicles, which were… you guessed it, stolen.
Sgt. Nelson, a PIT instructor for FCSO, successfully preformed a PIT maneuver on one of the vehicles, quickly resulting in two suspects being taken into custody. The second stolen vehicle was stopped by the use of tire deflation spike strips carried by FCSO Deputies on Ga 400 and three suspects fled into an Alpharetta apartment complex. After a massive manhunt, with K9 and air support. Three additional suspects are in custody, one left with a K9 bite to remember #youcantoutrunK9.
We now have three suspects who tried to steal from our Forsyth County Citizens in our Jail, two additional in the custody of the Youth Detention Center. Our FCSO Detectives are continuing the investigation, including possible gang ties by one or more of the suspects arrested.
