DECATUR COUNTY, GA (WALB) – A call to 911 about a suspected copper theft led Decatur County deputies on a multi-state chase.

Deputies spotted a pickup truck described in the 911 call in Grady County.

They chased it all the way to Havana, Florida but backed off when they noticed two children were inside.

The Florida Highway Patrol continued following the truck from a distance.

They eventually arrested the driver, Robert Crowe of Tallahassee.

Crowe is charged with burglary and fleeing an officer.

Deputies are still investigating and may file charges against an adult passenger.
