PIEDMONT, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Anderson Police Department said a suspect is in custody after a chase in a stolen vehicle on Thursday.

Officers said around 5:30 a.m., a policeman on patrol spotted a black Chevy HHR which had been reported stolen. When the officer activated his blue lights, police said the driver took off at a high rate of speed.

The pursuit continued down Highway 29 toward Highway 20 into Piedmont. The chase, which crossed into Greenville County, entered I-185 and reached speeds of 100 miles per hour.

According to the police report, the suspect took Augusta Road to Highway 86 and back into Anderson County. When officials threw out stop sticks, police said the suspect evaded them the first time but later hit more stop sticks near Highway 86 and Highway 20 before finally coming to a stop at Great Lawn Drive.

Officers said Jacky Lamar Autry Jr. and a female passenger were detained. Autry told officers he had purchased the car for $300 from a friend.

Autry is charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, failure to stop for blue lights and driving under suspension, second offense.
