Teen Chase Leads To Manhunt

A Monday night chase in Wichita Falls landed a 17-year-old girl behind bars facing drug related charges. Deputies are still searching for her passenger.

Wichita County Deputy Melvin Joyner said the chase started just before 11:00 at the intersection of Seymour Hwy. and Denver St. Corporal Carl Magee had attempted to pull the driver over for a traffic violation, but she sped off.

The vehicle was stopped in the 2500 block of Inglewood. The male passenger got out of the vehicle and ran off on foot. The driver was arrested and sent to the Wichita County Detention Center. She is charged with Evading Arrest/Detention with a Vehicle and Possession of Marijuana under two ounces.

Joyner said the Wichita County Sheriffs Department is continuing their search for the male passenger.
