CrimeStoppers offering cash reward to find Autauga County chase suspect

AUTAUGA CO., AL (WSFA) -

A manhunt was initiated (for a second time) in Autauga county Wednesday after authorities showed up at a home to serve a robbery warrant and ran into the man wanted in connection with a January police chase.

The search was suspended overnight, but authorities are back on scene now.

According to Autauga County Chief Deputy Joe Sedinger, deputies attempted to serve a robbery warrant at a residence off of Hwy. 31 early Wednesday afternoon. 

Deputies noticed a man jump out of a window at that residence and take off running. That man is the same person wanted in connection with a January domestic violence and police chase incident.

Prattville police officers were called to the scene of a domestic violence incident back on January 18. When officers arrived on the scene that day they witnessed an altercation inside a vehicle. Police activated their blue lights. That's when the suspect, Selma resident David Hunter, allegedly hit the gas on the vehicle, ramming an undercover police officer's unit and sending Prattville police on a chase.

Police pursued Hunter to a mobile home park on Hwy. 82 where he crashed into a mobile home and bailed out of his vehicle.

Hunter took off into the woods - and that was the last time he was seen by authorities for nearly four months.

Autauga County Sheriff Herbie Johnson says authorities are searching for Hunter in the area of county roads 59 and 62 near the new Marbury High School.

Chief Deputy Sedinger added that authorities were using dogs and the Alabama State Trooper helicopter to search for Hunter.

Central Alabama CrimeStoppers is offering a $500 cash reward for any information that leads to the arrest of Hunter, who they list as a fugitive from justice.
