York County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a man whom they say led them on a high speed chase before fleeing his vehicle and escaping fromrock hill 4 deputies.  This circumstance occurred when a Mazda sedan, with no working tag light, was discovered by deputies at around 2:00 a.m., and they attempted to pull the driver over, according to a report from the York County Sheriff’s Office.

Thereafter, the vehicle refused to stop, and continued driving down several roads in the community at a high rate of speed before crossing into Chester County.  Deputies eventually caught up with the car in a field close to Aaron Burr Road and Highway 909.  The car was up against the fence, and the driver was nowhere to be found. Chester County K9 units responded to the area, but were unable to pickup a scent of the man.  However, an identification card and a kilogram of marijuana was found in a Belk shopping bag.  The investigation is on-going.
