ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - The Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office is searching for three suspects involved in a Saturday high-speed chase, according to Investigator Kat Johnson.

On Feb. 25, Georgia State Patrol (GSP) attempted to do a traffic stop on a car with three suspects in it. The driver then led GSP in a high-speed chase with speeds over 100 mph.

The chase ended with the suspects’ vehicle veering off the road into a ditch. The suspects proceeded to jump out of the car and flee the scene.

Georgia State troopers tried to chase the suspects, but they were picked up by a getaway vehicle.

During the foot chase, the suspects’ vehicle caught on fire and the fire spread to the patrol car parked next to it.

“Both vehicles were a total loss,” Johnson said.

No injuries were reported during the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office at (229) 616-7430.
