THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - While many Thomas Countians made their way to church Sunday morning,  Sheriff's deputies say Althia Streeter led them on a chase.

Police say hours before Streeter was busy stealing from cars parked in a neighborhood on Pinetree Blvd.

"Sunday morning officers were paroling a residential area in town and noticed an interior light on in a vehicle," says Lt. Karen Murray with the Thomasville Police Department.

Deputy Scott Law checked with several neighbors and found that at least 6 cars were broken into.

Down the road Deputy Dillard spotted Streeter's vehicle, which was reported stolen from Tallahassee.

When the deputies approached the vehicle, one of them took a beating.

"The Sheriff's department saw the vehicle, went up to it, thought the driver was asleep actually and the guy hit the deputy with his vehicle and then took off," says Lt. Murray.

That was the start of the chase that went on for about 10 miles.

When deputies crashed into the stolen truck, Streeter then took off running.

"He's being charged with several counts entering autos...also aggravated assault on a police officer...DUI," she says.

Deputy Scott Law was out today but wasn't injured the initial hit or the crash.

The patrol car suffered 2800 dollars worth of damage. Luckily the car was the only thing hurt in the high speed chase. Feedback
