Reaching speeds over 100 mph, a chase that started on U.S. Highway 1 in Appling County ended in Pierce County, on Georgia Highway 32, with officers using what is known as a pit maneuver to get two suspects to stop. On Tuesday, January 8 at approximately 4:00 p.m., Baxley Police received a call from the loss prevention employee at Baxley Walmart in reference to shoplifting. On the way to answer the call the police officer was notified that the shoplifters had left the scene and were reported traveling in a brown Ford Windstar van, with a drive out tag, headed toward U.S. Highway 1 South. It was also reported that the driver of the van was driving erratically.
