Marijuana tossed from windows in I-65 chase

CLANTON, AL (WSFA) - Five one-gallon bags of marijuana, a car that refuses to stop and four area men are the reasons for a long traffic tie-up along Interstate 65 in Chilton County Tuesday afternoon.

Chilton County Sheriff Kevin Davis tells WSFA 12 News an anonymous tip put narcotics officers on notice that a large amount of drugs would be coming through the county, and it did.

Davis says around 4:00pm officers attempted to stop the suspect car as it passed the Chilton/Autauga County line heading north. Not only did the four suspects not stop, they began tossing huge bags of weed from the car along a two mile stretch.

The chase continued to mile marker 214 where Davis says the driver of the car, 24-year-old Deferio Varner, tried to cross the median and head south.

When one of passengers pointed a gun out the window, authorities moved in and rammed the car bringing the chase to an end. Passengers were identified as Larry Varner, 27, and Tim Dewayne Goode III, 28, both of Clanton and Jeffery Reese, 26, of Prattville.

The suspects are now charged with a laundry list of crimes including: Possession of marijuana 1st, resisting arrest, having a pistol without a permit, trafficking cannabis, attempting to elude, speeding and reckless endangerment.

Davis says none of the suspects or officers were injured in the chase.

The interstate was shut down for a short time so authorities could collect the dumped evidence.
