GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WTVQ) – After three people led police on a high-speed chase from Grant County to Scott County, Georgetown Police tell ABC 36 News that the suspects are wanted in multiple burglaries in the Bluegrass, the state of Ohio and possibly throughout the East Coast.
Georgetown Police say an attempt to locate alert, commonly refereed to as an “ATL” was issued for the car by law enforcement agencies in Ohio. The alert was also sent to some Northern Kentucky police departments. Sometime around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, a Williamstown police officer spotted the car and tried to pull it over.
Police say the car took off southbound on I-75 at “very high speed” and the Williamstown officer wasn’t able to keep up with it. Their department alerted Scott County that the car was heading their way and officers from Georgetown Police and the Scott County Sheriff’s Office headed towards the interstate to try and find the car.
Georgetown Police say when their officers spotted the car, it was traveling over 140 miles-per-hour and had no headlights on. Officers used spike strips near Exit 129 on I-75 to pop the tires on the car, but before officers could get close to the car the three people inside took off running towards the Toyota Georgetown Plant.
The Toyota Plant was locked down while police searched the plant’s property. About an hour later, police arrested Kristopher Khalil Wooten and David Martavious Scott. As of Thursday evening, a third suspect is still on the run, according to police.
Georgetown Police say they have already connected Wooten and Scott to multiple burglaries in Lexington, Richmond, Berea and Bourbon County and they are investigating their connection to burglaries “up-and-down the East Coast.”
