Dougherty County -- Police combed woods in South Albany looking for a gun a man used to shoot at them last Friday.

40 year old Bobby Coe led police on a chase through west and South Albany Friday and fired shots at them along the way.

He ran from police to avoid returning to prison where he's spent nearly ten years. Lt. Steve Mitchum said "He had a black suit hanging up in his truck. And he made the comment to his cousin, that the next time you see me I will be wearing that suit because I'm not going back to prison."

Coe spent nearly ten years in prison for attempting to rob a man at the Merry Acres Motel in 1992.

Police were after him because they believe he stole 5000 pounds of pecans from a Dougherty County pecan farm.
