Lt. Michael Johnson released the following information late Friday morning:
Dispatch gave out a BOLO from Decatur PD earlier in the evening in reference to breaking and entering- vehicle offenders in which they engaged in a pursuit with a suspect vehicle. They stopped the pursuit shortly thereafter. A Huntsville police officer later spotted the vehicle at Wal-Mart at 2200 Sparkman Drive. Two of the occupants ran from the vehicle and the female driver remained in the vehicle. HPD was able to detain one of the subjects that ran. HPD contacted Decatur PD and they advised they did not have any charges on the subjects. The one that was apprehended was transported to jail on unrelated warrants, see below.
The arrest we made was on Deondre Cleveland Day, 19. He had warrants for a residential burglary (committed in Huntsville in Dec. 2018), Obstructing governmental operations and two traffic warrants.
Huntsville and Decatur Police are both working to investigate an overnight high speed chase. Two people are being detained and police are currently searching for a third.
The chase started in Decatur according to police, but it wasn’t until 4:15 Friday morning that HPD picked up the chase. Decatur police stopped because speeds were too high and it was not safe, so they alerted HPD. The chase ended at the Walmart on Sparkman Drive just before 4:30.
Decatur Police were responding to calls of a breaking and entering and that’s when three people fled the scene in a stolen car. The driver, a female is being detained for questioning. A second person, a black male was arrested by HPD on unrelated warrants. A third person took off, prompting Huntsville Police to bring out the K9’s to help search for him.
This investigation is currently ongoing.
