Arrest Made After High Speed Chase


WINCHESTER, Va. - The Frederick County Sheriff's Office in Virginia has charged Jeremiah Wallace of Ranson with felony eluding, reckless driving and driving without a license after he allegedly lead Virginia State Police troopers and FCSO deputies on a high speed chase.

Deputies say Wallace is a fugitive, who is wanted by West Virginia State Police on separate charges.

The chase started Thursday afternoon, after WVSP put out a lookout notification for a vehicle. A VSP trooper spotted the car and attempted to stop it.

The trooper was unsuccessful in stopping the vehicle, and the car got away somewhere in the vicinity of Interstate-81 in Frederick County. Moments later, around 3 p.m., a FCSO deputy located the vehicle heading northbound on I-81 (around mile marker 316), and re-initiated the pursuit. 

The deputy attempted to pull over the vehicle, but Wallace only accelerated.

The car got off at the Hopewell Road exit, and ended up at Bruceton Road, where Wallace pulled into a driveway, exited the vehicle, and fled on foot.

Deputies detained a passenger in the vehicle, and were able to quickly chase down Wallace.

No information has been released on the passenger.

Wallace remained in custody after his bond hearing on Friday and is being held at the Northwestern Regional Adult Detention Center.

He is expected back in court on December 2, 2014.
