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.
