DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

Police tried to pull over a driver in Douglas, but he took off in his truck to get away, and crashed into a power pole Tuesday.  The chase began on east Baker Highway and ended in the 900 block of Brooks Avenue.

Officers from multiple agencies soon found the man, and arrested him. They also arrested another person at a house near where the man was found. They searched the house and found over $2,000.00 cash, a handgun, three quarters of a pound of marijuana, and other controlled substances.

The Douglas – Coffee Drug Unit said they would release more details and the suspects names when they are further along in their investigation. Both suspects are on probation for unrelated felony convictions.
