ALMA — An Alma man who eluded lawmen in a vehicle chase Saturday is being sought and police are asking everyone to be on the lookout for him, said an Alma Police Department spokesman.
Jared Prez Robinson, 27, is being sought by police on numerous charges including felony fleeing and aggravated assault (after Robinson attempted to ram a Bacon County Sheriff’s Department vehicle), the spokesman said.
Robinson led police on a chase through the east and south parts of Alma, but police backed off after seeing a child’s car seat in the back seat of the vehicle, the spokesman said.
“As the chase turned onto Stock Market Road, Bacon County Sheriff’s Department deputies noticed a child’s car seat in the back seat of the vehicle,” the spokesman said. “At that point, Alma police and Bacon County deputies terminated the pursuit.”
Lawmen recognized and identified the driver of the vehicle. The Alma Police Department has secured arrest warrants on Robinson.
The spokesman said he will also be charged with driving with a suspended driver’s license, reckless driving, no license plate, disregard for a traffic light, failure to maintain a lane, driving on the wrong side of the roadway, six counts of speeding and seven counts of stop sign violations.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Robinson is asked to call the Alma Police Department at 632-8751, the Bacon County Sheriff’s Office at 632-2658, or Bacon County 911.
