Two Reidsville residents were arrested Sunday after a high-speed car chase that started in Davie before the suspects were apprehended in Yadkinville.

It started about 2:03 p.m., when a Davie sheriff’s deputy attempted to stop a Chevrolet Cruze that had been reported as stolen on US 601 North near Danner Road, Mocksville.

“The vehicle failed to stop for blue lights and siren while continuing to accelerate in speed,” reported Chief Deputy Brian Jacobs. “Speeds reached 100 mph in the 55 mph zone.”

Yadkin sheriff’s deputies joined the chase when it reached the county line, and in Yadkinville, police there, along with the N.C. Highway Patrol, used stop sticks to deflate the tires on the suspect vehicle.

The driver was identified as Kara Suzanne Barrow, 30, and the passenger was Randy Aaron Mabe Jr., 26, both of the same Reidsville address.

Barrow had an outstanding warrant for obtaining property by false pretense out of Rockingham County.

“A glass pipe was located in the vehicle where Randy was sitting, and suspected heroin was also found near Randy,” Jacobs reported.

Barrow was charged with felony fleeing to elude arrest in a vehicle and possession of a stolen vehicle.

Mabe was charged with felony possession of a stolen vehicle, felony possession of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Eden police took out felony larceny of a motor vehicle warrants against both suspects.

Yadkin sheriff’s officers charged Barrow with felony fleeing to elude arrest and a vehicle and careless and reckless driving.

Barrow received a $50,000 bond for the Davie charges with a court date of June 29, and an additional $21,000 bond for the Yadkin and Rockingham counties charges.

Mabe’s bond for the Davie charges was $15,000 with a June 29 court date. He received a $10,000 bond on the Rockingham County charge.

“The Davie County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank Yadkin County Sheriff’s Office, Yadkinville Police Department, and N.C. State Highway Patrol for their assistance,” Jacobs said.
