Chesterfield Police on the hunt for pursuit suspect

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

Chesterfield Police are looking for the man who they said ran from officers Sunday night.

The chase started about 7:45 p.m. Sunday along East River Road near Fourth Street.
Officers tried to pull two people over after noticing their car had tinted windows. The vehicle stopped, then took off when the officer approached, according to police.

After a short chase through the Matoaca area, the car reached a dead end and the driver jumped out and ran into the woods, police said. The man got away, but police say they know who he is and have taken out several warrants for his arrest.

A search of the car revealed what police believe is cocaine. A handgun was also found near the scene, and police believe that the firearm may have come from the suspect.

A passenger in the vehicle was not charged.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Chesterfield Crime Solvers at (804) 748-0660.
