NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Authorities appear to have one man in custody following a chase that ended in North Charleston Monday evening, according to witnesses on the scene.
The North Charleston Police Department said officers were assisting Charleston County deputies following a chase that took place in Berkeley County and ended in North Charleston at I-526 and International Boulevard.
Police say the suspect fled the vehicle on foot, but witnesses say officers have placed a man into a patrol car.
The man is not believed to be missing Dorchester County Jail inmate Donald Little, who has been on the run since early Friday morning, however witnesses say the vehicle involved in the chase has the same license plate number as the car Berkeley County deputies believed was stolen by three inmates in Goose Creek late Saturday night or early Sunday morning.
A helicopter was spotted in the area assisting authorities in the search. Motorists reported that officers had guns drawn as they searched the area.
