Caddo Pursuit Ends in Texas With 4 Arrests
A simple traffic violation in Caddo Parish turned into an all out pursuit across state lines late Friday night. According to KTBS, deputies with the Caddo Parish Sheriff's office attempted to pull over a red Chevy Camaro driven by 32 year-old Charles Dressen of Shreveport for following the car in front of him on I-20 near the tourist bureau too closely.
That when the sports car with Dressen and 3 of his friends took off, leading authorities on an eastbound chase. Although that pursuit started on I-20, Dressen would reportedly lead police down exit 3 near Pines Road, eastward on Jefferson Paige road, over LA Highway 3132, back towards Pines Road, then westbound onto Highway 80, before finally careening off of the road near HWY 9 in Harrison County.
The driver and 2 passengers (30 year-old Jessica Branch and 29 year-old Cody Allen of Shreveport) would bolt from the car as soon as it stopped. All 3 suspects would be caught by authorities and their K-9 partners. A 4th suspect, 31 year-old Bryan Marshall of Denim Springs, Texas, remained in the vehicle.
Greenwood Police reported that 2 guns and approximately 2 kilos of suspected methamphetamines were thrown from the car during the chase and recovered on I-20 east. All 4 suspects are reportedly in the Harrison County Jail after being briefly treated and released from Good Shepherd Medical Center in Marshall.
