Deputies are searching for a male suspect accused of stealing a Honda Civic, then wrecking the vehicle after fleeing a routine traffic stop.

Approximately 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, a Richmond County deputy attempted to initiate a traffic stop on Second Avenue, according to an incident report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office. Instead of stopping, the suspect turned right onto Bolt Drive, but crashed into a parked vehicle.

The suspect then fled on foot towards First Avenue. The deputy gave chase but lost sight of the suspect, the report stated.

The car’s owner was notified and confirmed she had not given anyone permission to drive her vehicle.

The suspect is described as a black male, 5-foot-9 and last seen wearing gray shorts and a gray T-shirt.

+1 living the dream. Can't

+1 living the dream.

Can't have anything nowadays without some low life slimy slug trying to steal it from you. All thieves need to die.

An Life goes on in Augusta

Having been inside and now outside looking in on Augusta I can honestly say the worst is yet to come.

I expect to see a 4 mil property tax increase and a few "added" taxes all to help balance DOWNTOWNS and their immigrants to the South Side needs.

Civic?

Who tries to 'escape' in a Honda Civic? He should have had a Prius in an old fashioned burnout road race!

After crashing the car on Bolt Drive, the driver bolted. Must be one fast dude.

Surely if it was a GRU cop

Surely if it was a GRU cop they would have got him- probably by shooting or taser.
