15-year-old arrested after police chase

SoVaNow.com / April 04, 2013
A 15 year old female driver was apprehended at the intersection of Halifax Road and Golf Course Road shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday night after leading law enforcement officers on a high speed chase.

The vehicle she was driving was reportedly taken from the home of her grandmother, who lives on T.N. Snow Highway. The vehicle was taken late Tuesday evening after she told relatives that she was going to run away from home.

According to information from the Halifax County Sheriff’s Department, the juvenile suspect was charged with felony unauthorized use of a vehicle, felony eluding police, having no valid driver’s license and other traffic offenses. She was transported to the W. W. Moore Juvenile Intake Facility.

The Sheriff’s Department initially received information that the vehicle might have been at a residence on James D. Hagood Highway. Deputy C. A. Bates spotted the car on that roadway and attempted to stop it.

The driver did not stop and continued traveling on James D. Hagood Highway until she made a right turn onto Bethel Road at which time she accelerated, exceeding the speed limit. She continued on into the Town of Halifax where Corporal S. M. Bowen placed spike strips in the roadway to safely stop the vehicle.

Sheriff Fred Clark extended his thanks to all the agencies, including the Virginia State Police who assisted in the incident.
