VEHICLE PURSUIT - FEB 25, 2011

 

VEHICLE PURSUIT ENDS IN FOOT PURSUIT IN GREENE COUNTY

 

2/28/2011

 

A pursuit that initiated Friday, February 25, 2011, on US Hwy 98 in George County ended in a foot pursuit in Greene County.  When a George County Deputy attempted a traffic stop on a black Ford Ranger on US Hwy 98, the driver, who was later identified as twenty-seven (27) year old Jason Lee Miller, failed to stop and fled into Greene County via Hwy 63.  George County Deputies stopped their vehicle pursuit at a residence on McLeod Road after Miller drove behind the residence and drove into the woods on a plowed fire lane.  Greene County Deputies soon received a report that a black Ford Ranger had struck a vehicle in the same area on George Brown Road and fled the scene.  Deputies found the vehicle in the back of an adjacent field where Miller and his passenger, twenty-eight (28) year old Heidi M. Havard, had fled on foot.  The K-9 division of the Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC) from the South Mississippi Correctional Institution (SMCI) in Leakesville, MS, was contacted and asked to assist.  Thanks to the efforts of the K-9 Unit, Miller and Havard were captured within hours.

 

At the time of the pursuit, Miller was wanted by MDOC for a probation violation.  He also was wanted by the Greene County Sheriff’s Department on a warrant for felony fleeing.  He is now facing a new charge of possessing precursor chemicals with the intent to manufacture methamphetamines, as well as a new felony fleeing charge in George County.
