The chase began in Boiling Springs, S.C., where Travis Neal Biggerstaff, 32, of Campobello, S.C. is accused of stealing a white 2002 GMC Sierra truck. He was also wanted on outstanding felony warrants.
Biggerstaff eluded South Carolina deputies and traveled up I-26 into Polk County. Columbus police officers Jason Case and Nicholas Stott, who were patrolling in the same vehicle, took over the chase at 8:43 p.m.
Stott said Biggerstaff was driving 100 to 110 m.p.h.
Henderson County police officials laid spike strips at exit 49A toward Hendersonville, according to Stott, but the driver took the Bat Cave exit and fled toward Edneyville. Police lost sight of the vehicle around the Justice Academy in Edneyville, Stott said.
Biggerstaff was arrested Tuesday morning during a traffic stop near California Avenue and Asheville Highway in Spartanburg County, according to the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office.
He faces one count of grand larceny and three counts of receiving stolen goods in South Carolina.
According to Stott, he also faces other charges in Polk County, including felony fleeing to elude arrest, felony possession of stolen motor vehicle and a list of traffic violations.
