GEORGETOWN, SC (WCSC) - One of three men who fled from a traffic stop from Georgetown Police earlier Friday is in custody and authorities are using K9 officers to track two others, authorities say.

Geogetown Police attempted to pull over a vehicle that had been reported stolen from the Myrtle Beach Airpirt in Horry County when the vehicle began to flee the scene, Georgetown Police Capt. Nelson Brown said. The vehicle went off the right side of White Hall Road near U.S. 17 and crashed as its driver tried to pass two vehicles, he said.

At that point, three or more people jumped out of the vehicle and ran into the woodline.

The Georgetown Police Department, Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, SC Highway Patrol and SLED set up a perimeter to search.

Police say Naquan Spann was captured.
