Two juveniles were detained, and others fled on foot after Davie Sheriff’s deputies attempted to stop a car on July 18 that had been reported stolen in Greensboro.

Around 10:30 p.m., deputies initiated the traffic stop on a 2020 Honda Accord on Valley Road in Mocksville. The vehicle was reported stolen out of Greensboro.

“Upon attempting to stop the vehicle, the driver immediately fled and attempted to evade the sheriff’s office, which ensued in a brief chase,” said Sheriff J.D. Hartman. “When turning onto I-40 eastbound the driver lost control of the vehicle and wrecked on the on-ramp to I-40.

“The vehicle became immobile, and approximately 4-5 suspects ran from the vehicle on foot.”

Two male juveniles were located and detained a short time later.

After a search of the vehicle and area, deputies located three pistols. One was reported stolen out of Winston-Salem, and another (Glock 19) was located with a fully auto Glock switch which are illegal under federal law, and an extended magazine.

Multiple cell phones and stolen credit cards and personal identifier documents belonging to other individuals were located inside of the vehicle, Hartman said. Deputies are working with surrounding agencies on items located inside the vehicle.

The other suspects haven’t been identified.
