Sheriff: Man charged after leading deputies on chase

Posted: Updated:
GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Deputies in Georgetown County arrested a 29-year-old man after a chase on Thursday night, authorities say.

According to the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to Pickens Street in Kensington after receiving reports of a suspicious person.

While deputies were canvassing the area, a vehicle matching the description of the suspects was spotted at a stop sign, a release states. The deputies tried to pull the vehicle over, but the motorist would not stop, and deputies saw something being tossed out of the window.

Authorities say the driver then led deputies on a pursuit from Summit Avenue through the Georgetown city limits before the suspect abandoned the vehicle on Sorrel Street.

After sheriff's deputies safely placed the vehicle in park, they searched the area for the suspect, but came up empty. Then they checked the vehicle, and found items belonging to Jerrod Trappier, including something with his address on it.

Deputies went to the Trappier's address and overheard a conversation between three men, who were reportedly discussing the chase.

After covering all entrances and exits to the home, sheriff's deputies knocked on the door and requested identification from all present. When confronted with the overheard information, Jerrod Trappier admitted being the driver of the vehicle, deputies said.

Trappier was charged with failure to stop for blue lights, driving under suspension and possession of marijuana.

He is being held in the Georgetown County Detention Center.
