COLQUITT COUNTY,  GA (WALB) - A high-speed chase ended with an unsuccessful manhunt in Hartsfield this morning.

Around 8 AM a Colquitt county deputy was patrolling the Sylvester Drive area where they've had a lot of recent burglaries.

He spotted a white dodge pickup driving in circles. When the deputy turned on his lights the driver took off and led deputies on a 40-mile chase through Colquitt, Worth, and Mitchell counties at speeds up to 100 miles an hour.

The chase ended in Hartsfield where he jumped out of the truck and ran into some woods.

"We had the dogs out, K9 unit out, chasing him through the woods but with no success. We know who the subject is, we'll end up taking warrants on him and arresting him at a later date," said Capt. Hal Suber, Colquitt County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies say the man in that truck was Randy Lamb.

Law enforcers from several agencies lined up along Bass Road and Highway 37 in Hartsfield for several hours looking for him But he's still on the run.
