Arrests are made after motor-vehicle pursuit



According to a press release from the Lumpkin County Sheriff’s Office, LC deputies were involved in a motor vehicle pursuit, starting in Lumpkin County and ending in Hall County.

The pursuit occurred after an LC deputy attempted to perform a traffic stop on a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee that contained four occupants, for defective equipment. The Cherokee failed to stop after the deputy initiated their emergency equipment, and the occupants appeared to be trying to hide items within the interior of the vehicle.

The pursuit ended in Hall County on the block of 5800 Cool Springs Road after the driver lost control of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, leaving the roadway and striking a wooden fence. The occupants all fled on foot, but Hall County deputies apprehended two of the suspects. A Lumpkin County Deputy, along with his K-9, caught the other two suspects, after engaging in foot pursuit.

The suspects arrested were Samantha Woody, Brandon Flanagan, Herman Dover, John Rodgers II. They have been charged with Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Related Objects. The driver, Samantha Woody, was also charged with traffic violations.

LCSO released a statement of gratitude for help in apprehending the suspects, “The Lumpkin County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank Hall County and the Georgia State Patrol, for their assistance in the pursuit and capture.” attracts more than 300,000 page views and 3.5 million impressions per month for ad server.
