Sheriff’s office seeks information on suspects involved in high speed chase

On Monday May 19, 2008 3 a.m., Polk County Sheriff&squo;s Office deputies attempted to stop a light colored (possibly silver, grey or light blue) two-door coupe for a moving violation.

The vehicle failed to stop and a high speed pursuit ensued. The pursuit was terminated on Interstate 26 around exit 10 inside South Carolina. The driver of the vehicle was a white female appearing to be in her early twenties wearing a red and white sports dress with the number 13 on the back.

The passenger was a white male appearing to be in his early twenties wearing red gym shorts and a grey t-shirt.

Lt. Nicholas Stott with the sheriff&squo;s office says the two suspects ran out of the Texaco after slamming the door and left driving without lights on.

If you have any information or can identify either of the two individuals, please contact Lt. Nicholas Stott at the Polk County Sheriff&squo;s Office (828) 894-3001. The suspect vehicle is in the upper right corner of the surveillance photographs.
