Deputies Assist With Vehicle Chase From Catawba County

Lincoln County Sheriff's
Office Press Release

LINCOLNTON, N.C. – Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies assisted Catawba County deputies with stopping a vehicle chase that came into Lincoln County on NC 16 Highway today around 6 a.m. June 9.

Catawba County Communications advised a vehicle pursuit was traveling into Lincoln County and deputies were dispatched to several intersections to deploy stop sticks. The suspect vehicle, a U-Haul truck pulling a stolen trailer, was able to avoid the stop sticks at the NC 150 intersection. The vehicle continued south on Highway 16.

LCSO deputies then deployed stop sticks at the St. James Church Road intersection. The stop sticks were successful in damaging the right rear tires on the truck and trailer. The suspect vehicle slowed to approximately 30 miles an hour. As the vehicle reached the NC 73 Highway on ramp, stop sticks were deployed again by Lincoln and Catawba County deputies.

The truck, now running on one fully inflated tire, came to a halt. Catawba County deputies called for the suspect and passenger to exit the vehicle at gun point. After about 25 minutes of not following the deputy’s commands, the suspect and passenger surrendered to the officers. They were transported back to Catawba County where they were charged and placed in the Catawba County Detention Center.

The stop stick tire deflation devices are carried in all Lincoln County Sheriff's deputies patrol vehicles. Since being added to the patrol cars, the stop sticks have been instrumental in bringing several vehicle pursuits to a quick end.
