TROY, AL (WSFA) -
Police Department is asking for the public's help finding 31-year-old Marco Deon Swanson after he and several patrol officers were involved in a police chase Thursday.
Jimmy Ennis says officers tried to stop Swanson's orange Ford Mustang on Orion Street around 12:30 p.m, but the vehicle refused to stop, instead turning on to US
231 North and excelerating.
Officers chased the vehicle on US 231 North until it pulled onto
Childs Road and the driver stopped the vehicle. Swanson then fled
the vehicle and ran into the woods.
Troy Police Department officers with the
assistance of the Alabama State Troopers set up a perimeter along US 231 in the
attempt to catch the man but after an hour authorities called off the search.
Swanson was wanted on four outstanding Allis warrants with the Troy Police Department. He now is wanted for several new charges in connection with the pursuit.
If you have
any information in reference to Swanson's location, please contact the Troy
Police Department at 334-566-0500 or the Secret Witness hotline at 566-5555.
