Richmond County Sheriff’s deputies have a man in custody after they say he led them on a chase around south Augusta on Friday afternoon.

Chavious Oliver, 19, had a grand jury arrest warrant and out-of-state warrants out on him, Capt. Scott Gay said. Undercover narcotics agents had set up a sting involving a drug sale to grab Oliver when he took off in his car on Wrightsboro Road, he said.

Road patrol took over the chase and captured him in the 1900 block of Third Street after 15 minutes.

According to the Richmond County Superior Court Web site, Oliver was charged on Dec. 2 for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana and obstruction of a law enforcement officer. He was indicted Jan 10, and the grand jury arrest warrant was filed Jan. 12.

Glad he was caught hopefully

Glad he was caught hopefully with minimal damage to the nerves and property of other people, including the police. Sorry that another young man has allegedly been wasting his life on the evil morass that is illegal drug-trafficking.

When did Wrightsboro Road and Third Street become "south Augusta?"

Don't ya know? South Augusta

Don't ya know? South Augusta is the PC way of now saying Augusta.

BTW: a lot of South-Siders no longer feel US-25 and Gordon Hwy is the dividing line, its now South of Tobacco Rd. from Gate 5 to Lock-n-Dam.
