Cayce police officers searching for suspect after car and foot chase

Cayce, SC (Paul Kirby) – An officer with the Cayce Department of Public Safety pursued a vehicle from their city into West Columbia after the driver refused to pull over initiating the chase. The pursuit started at approximately 2:29 p.m. Monday close to Charleston Highway in Cayce.

Traffic was light when the pursuit began, and the fleeing car never got over 85 miles per hour. The fleeing suspect weaved in and out of Cayce streets with the officer’s cruiser close behind. Eventually, the suspect hit a mailbox on Millpond before crashing into another car on Platt Springs Road. His car was damaged, but he was able to continue fleeing until the suspect bailed out of the car near Dreher Road and Thornton Avenue. He ran on foot over to Hammond Street where he was last seen jumping a fence between yards.

The suspect is described as a white male in his early to mid-40s. He was wearing a blue t-shirt and blue jeans when he bailed from the car. Officers immediately set up a perimeter and dropped a K-9 on his track.

As of 2:45 p.m., officers from the West Columbia Police Department have joined in the hunt and they are focusing on the 200 block of Hammond Avenue. They have also run the vehicle’s identification numbers and pinpointed an address where it is registered. Deputies have been asked to go to that address to see if they could locate the vehicle’s owner. SC State Troopers are working the wrecks involving the mailbox and yard damage on Millpond and the crash that involved another vehicle on Platt Springs Road.
