Chase suspect still on the loose

October 3, 2007

Worth County --  The manhunt continues for the third suspect who escaped after a high speed chase with State Troopers Tuesday night.

Two men are in custody, and troopers say they were smoking marijuana in the car before they were stopped.

A Chevy Malibu refused to stop after troopers clocked the car going 90 miles per hour on Georgia 300 in Worth County. Troopers chased the car for a little less than two miles, before it pulled into the Worthy Manor Mobile Home neighborhood.

24-year-old Eric Barber of Albany and 25-year-old Frederick Randall were arrested by authorities, but the third suspect ran and escaped.

A manhunt including Dougherty County Police and search dogs did not find the suspect, who the arrested men could only identify as "Earl."

"We put out a general description for a black male suspect, about six feet tall. He had actually shed some of his clothing," said Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek.   

Troopers continue their investigation, and think drugs could have been involved in this case.
Barber and Randall are being held in the Dougherty County jail. Barber for possession of marijuana, and Randall was wanted for probation violation.

The third suspect is wanted for attempting to elude police and reckless driving.
