Stolen car abandoned in Hatfield, chase began in Pine Bluff
By Jeri Pearson
Hatfield residents were alerted to a suspect attempting to evade law enforcement Saturday, May 8.
Sheriff Scott Sawyer said a search for a fugitive fleeing from state police in a stolen vehicle from Pine Bluff began at 12:45 p.m.
“The suspect abandoned the stolen car just north of Hatfield and fled on foot,” Sawyer said.
The Sheriff’s Office, State Police, and Game and Fish were in the area actively searching through the course of Mother’s Day weekend.
Residents were asked to secure homes, out buildings and vehicles and call 911 or 394-2511 to report suspicious activity.
Sawyer updated the community through social media.
“We do have a preliminary identification of the female suspect. We are working with other agencies to get a positive ID. Once we do, I’ll release the name. We’ve also developed information that the suspect may have left the area in a second vehicle that she was traveling with.”
Sawyer said the area continues to be patrolled and again requested anyone with information contact the authorities.
