NEWTON GROVE – Numerous law enforcement officers were involved in a high speed chase Monday. It started on US Highway 13 at McLamb Road in Newton Grove. Deputies assigned to the Sampson County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Interdiction Team observed a vehicle reported stolen from New York. The occupants in the vehicle were considered armed and dangerous.
The driver of the stolen vehicle initially stopped but failed to comply with the commands being given by officers. The vehicle sped away from the traffic stop and a pursuit ensued with the vehicle.
During the chase, one of the suspects threw a firearm out the passenger side window of the car, which was recovered.
The pursuit entered Wayne County and then the Goldsboro city limits. Goldsboro Police, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, and North Carolina State Highway Patrol assisted.
The stolen vehicle crashed into another car at the intersection of Highway 70 East and Millers Chapel Road. The suspects fled from the wreck into the office of Clayton Homes, located at the intersection.
Law enforcement officers from several agencies took the suspects into custody without further incident. Three of the passengers were juveniles from New York, one of which was reported missing.
It was also discovered that the stolen vehicle had been involved in a shooting in Albany, New York. The vehicle had apparent signs of damage from gunfire.
The driver, identified Devin Caldwell, age 23, of Brooklyn New York, was charged with felony fleeing to elude arrest, carrying a concealed weapon, failure to stop for a blue light and siren, driving on a revoked license, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, speeding, reckless driving, left of center, following too closely, and littering. He was confined in the Sampson County Detention Center under a $22,000 bond.
The NC Department of Juvenile Justice declined to take secure custody of two juveniles. They were released to family members, according to a news release.
9 charges, could have kill an innocent person and all he gets is $22k. This is why criminals keep being criminals
His record was clean Einstein
Are you sure about that?? 😉
That bond amount…..??!! real jaw dropper! If that “catch me if u can” stunt
was pulled in NY, chances are the headlines could have read “FATALITIES,” instead of “released to their parents,” & an unbelievably low bond.” Hopefully,
lessons will be learned 🙏🙏
Pathetically low bond. Shameful
22k bond is a disgrace to LEOs and the public. I agree with Jimmy, pathetically low bond!
