Police chase suspect arrested

October 27, 2005

Thomasville, Georgia-- A Thomasville man is charged with leading police on a high-speed chase.

Officers say Levi Kelly stole a Ford F-150 from a business on Baybrook Street last night. When he was spotted by police on West Jackson Street, he took off. Police chased him about 20 miles, all the way into Florida.

"The truck did not stop. A pursuit occurred and it ended in Leon County where the suspect is held in jail awaiting extradition," says Thomasville Police Sgt. Rachelle Denmark.

Kelly is facing a number of traffic charges in Florida. Police in Thomasville say that when he's brought back there, he'll most likely be charged with theft of a motor vehicle.
