A number of law enforcement agencies including Centre Police and Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office deputies took part in a high-speed chase Monday afternoon.
According to Police Chief Kirk Blankenship, Investigator Randy Mayorga pulled over a car for speeding around 4:00pm on East Main Street close to Gossett, and the driver fled, reaching extremely high speeds, with the pursuit continuing toward the Georgia State Line. The vehicle, which managed to disappear, was found a short time later, with tracking dogs that had been brought in, helping to find one occupant of the vehicle.
The suspect, 23 year old Brenda Garcia, was booked into the County Jail around 6:00 that evening and bonded out just before 11:30 that night; she was listed as a resident of Norcross, Georgia – charged with Attempting to Elude. Mayorga said two other individuals were in the car during the chase, but the tracking dog was unable to locate them.
The search for the pair is on-going.
