GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) – Georgetown County Sheriff's deputies arrested as 29-year-old man after he led them on a vehicle pursuit, abandoned his vehicle, and was located at his address Thursday.

Deputies were dispatched to a report of a suspicious person walking through yards near the 1800 block of Pickens Street in the Kensington Community, according to a news release from the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office.

While deputies were canvassing the area, they saw a vehicle matching the description of the suspect's, later identified as Jerrod Trappier, and tried to pull him over, officials stated. The suspect tossed something from the window, and then led deputies on a pursuit from Summit Avenue through the city limits, before abandoning the vehicle on Sorrel Street, the release stated. Deputies put the abandoned vehicle in park and searched the area, but were unable to locate him.

According to the release, inside the vehicle, deputies found items belonging to the suspect, as well as information on the car's owner. They went to the owner's address, where they overheard three men talking about fleeing from the deputies, the release states.

Once deputies covered all exits to the home, they knocked on the door and asked for the men to identify themselves.

"When confronted with the overheard information, Jerrod Trappier admitted being the driver of the vehicle," the release states.

Trappier was charged with failure to stop for blue lights, driving under suspension, and possession of marijuana. He is now awaiting a bond hearing at Georgetown County Detention.
