Worth police continue search

December 6, 2006

Worth County - - A man who led Worth County deputies on a high-speed chase Tuesday is still free.

A Worth County deputy tried to pull a driver over for speeding and illegally passing a vehicle, but the man sped off.

He ended up in the woods on County Line Road near Spring Flatts Road where he left the car and ran. Wednesday morning, deputies finger-printed the car.

Worthy County Sheriff Freddie Tompkins says the car is registered in Douglas county, but the tag owner doesn't match the name of the vehicle's owner.

Sheriff Tompkins says deputies found a hair net and other items that may belong to an employee at the Equity Group Chicken plant.

Tuesday, Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit K-9's tracked the suspect. The G.S.P. helicopter also flew over the area, but they failed to find the driver.
