1 arrested; 1 sought after carjacking leads to chase on I-20 

Authorities are searching for a carjacking suspect who led DeKalb County police on a chase onto I-20. 

The suspect and an accomplice carjacked at Toyota Corolla on Mayfair Crossing Drive on Tuesday, DeKalb County police spokeswoman Shiera Campbell said. 

A DeKalb County police sergeant later spotted the suspects in the car on Thompson Mill Road and a pursuit began, Campbell said. 

“During the pursuit, the two suspects ran from the vehicle near Thompson Mill Road and Miller Road,” she told Channel 2 Action News. “(The driver) was taken into custody after a short foot pursuit.” 

Three cars were hit during the chase on I-20 before DeKalb authorities stopped the stolen car under the I-285 bridge, Campbell said. 

No one was injured during the chase.
