Routine Stop Turns Into Chase for MPD
On September 22 2009, Officers of the Marianna Police Department observed a white pickup truck with faulty taillights. Officers then tried to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle, but the vehicle refused to stop. The driver led Officers on a pursuit in a neighborhood almost striking a vehicle head on. The driver made attempts to elude Officers by not stopping at stop signs and taking hard corners. The vehicle finally came to a stop in an open lot where the driver, Larry Ragan Sconiers, was taken into custody. Sconiers awaits first appearance at the JCCF.
