On Easter Sunday a 24-year-old Thomasville man was arrested after leading Cairo Police on a chase. A Cairo woman had called 9-1-1 at 5:11 p.m. Sunday to report that someone driving a black Kia Soul was trying to pick up her young nephew on Fourth Avenue S.W.
The complainant said the car’s back window was knocked out, and the driver was wearing a hoodie on his head.
As officers searched the area, another call to 9-1-1 indicated the car was on Copeland Avenue S.W.
Cairo Police Lt. Dwight Patten intercepted the suspected vehicle at the intersection of 12th Street S.W. and M.L.K. Avenue. When officers turned on their emergency lights to stop the vehicle, the driver allegedly sped off heading west on M.L.K. Avenue for several blocks before the car stopped and a male passenger got out of the vehicle.
Meanwhile, the driver attempted a U-turn, but Lt. Patten reports he struck the side of the driver’s Kia Soul and pushed it onto the sidewalk on the south side of M.L.K. “to safely end the pursuit.”
The driver got out of the car on the passenger side and reportedly ran from the scene. Patten says he was later caught and arrested.
Trevus Demarquis Brown, 24, Thomasville, is charged with fleeing attempting to elude, possession of stolen property, reckless driving, and driving without a valid license, according to Patten, who reports that Brown is also wanted in Thomasville for other violations.
