On Friday, at approximately 9:10 p.m. on Red Top Mountain Road and Waterside Drive in Emerson, the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office and Georgia State Patrol conducted a highway safety check, during which two men fled on foot.

According to the incident report, a BCSO deputy observed a black car turn around in the middle of the roadway in an attempt to avoid the safety check, which prompted the deputy to get in his vehicle and chase the black car, initiating a traffic stop at the Sunoco service station on Red Top Mountain Road. As the deputy pulled behind the vehicle, he observed two white males exiting from the black car and a white female sitting inside the front passenger seat.

As the deputy approached the vehicle, he reported giving them loud, verbal commands to not move and show their hands as one fled on foot. During the chase, the deputy warned the suspect he would be tased if he did not stop, but the deputy fell during the pursuit and discharged the taser, not striking anyone. The suspect then jumped over a fence and fled into the woods and could not be found by the responding deputies or other deputies.

When the deputy returned to the black vehicle, he observed the other male to be missing and asked the female for identifiable information on the males. She said the only information she had were they were cousins, but she gave the phone number of the girlfriend of one of the males to the deputy.

The deputy contacted the alleged girlfriend by phone, who provided the deputy with information on one of the males. The deputy ran the male’s information in the Bartow County Eagle System and his information did resemble the male at the scene, identified as Randall Shaun Carter, and he was able to secure a warrant for his arrest. He was unable to secure a warrant for the other male.

At approximately 10:20 p.m. Friday, a BCSO deputy noticed a vehicle at the Chevron on U.S. Highway 41 with multiple occupants being driven by a male he had previously cited for driving in violation of an instructional permit, according to the incident report.

The driver pulled from the Chevron onto U.S. Highway 41 in northbound traffic and as the deputy followed the vehicle, the vehicle immediately pulled into the next drive at a closed car wash. Due to the deputy’s knowledge of the occupants and that the driver was again in violation of his instructional permit, he initiated a traffic stop which resulted in the driver stopping the vehicle, exiting and running around the 200 building of Parkway North. After being unable to catch the fleeing driver, the deputy returned to his patrol car and noticed the other passengers had left the vehicle and area.

The owner of the vehicle, who also was the mother of the driver, came to the scene and said her son was responsible for the car.

The car was towed and warrants for violation of limited permit, obstruction and fleeing and attempting to elude were taken on Daquain Jakelous Carter.

Gas stolen from vehicle, home

A BCSO deputy was dispatched to 4398 Joe Frank Harris Parkway address in Adairsville at 2 p.m. Friday in reference to a gas theft, according to the incident report.

Upon arrival, the deputy met with the complainant/victim who stated an unknown person removed four gas cans from her yard, along with her tiller, and that someone had put holes in the gas tank of her truck, draining the gas.

There were no suspects at the time of the report.
