Chase suspect caught

October 12, 2007

Albany -- Albany Police Friday arrested a man charged with leading South Georgia lawmen on a high speed chase across three counties Thursday afternoon.

 Friday morning he led Police on another chase, this time on a bicycle and then on foot. 35-year old Jason Semrau was caught behind a restaurant on North Slappey Boulevard and Broad Avenue about ten AM.

Thursday Turner County Sheriff's Investigators say Semrau ran from them in this truck when they went to his Mother's house to investigate forged check charges. They say he got up to 120-miles an hour as they chased him across Turner, Worth, and Dougherty Counties.

When Officers attempted to stop him before he entered Albany at Clark Avenue, Semrau turned into a neighborhood, ran through a fence, and they lost him.

Lee County Sheriff's Officers found the damaged truck on the Senah Plantation off Philema Road.

Semrau is in the Dougherty County Jail.
