Johnston Man Wanted after Car Chase

web posted August 26, 2014

JOHNSTON   A 20-year-old Johnston man is being sought by Johnston Police after refusing to stop for blue lights and siren when an officer tried to make a traffic stop on Johnson Street around 3 am Saturday morning. The officer noticed the tan Chevy Caprice due to it driving with no headlights. Once the officer got behind the car the driver refused to stop and made several turns trying to elude the officer.

The pursuit went down Lee Street, Johnson Street and ending on Andrews Street when the driver jumped from the car and fled on foot. According to an incident report, the driver is identified as Deviyantes O'Brian West, of Johnston. The report states he was dressed in a black hat, black shirt and shoes with tan shorts. When he fled he was also carrying a white plastic bag with unknown items inside.

The officer gave chase on foot but lost sight of West. Another officer patrolled the area in an effort to block his escape to no avail.

The car, which came back to a woman, was towed from the scene and a hold placed on it until West makes contact with Johnston Police. He is wanted for failure to stop for blue lights and siren. Other charges may be pending his arrest.
