Police lights siren generic

BOILING SPRINGS, SC (FOX CAROLINA) - Deputies are searching for a person after they fled a traffic stop in Boiling Springs, according to the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office.

According to the Sheriff's Office, deputies attempted to stop a driver on Parris Bridge Road because their license plate was suspended and on the wrong vehicle. Deputies said the driver increased their speed and refused to stop for deputies. 

Deputies said they called off the chase due to unsafe speeds, but they soon found the car near Parris Bridge Road and Shoally Creed Road. According to deputies, it appeared that the driver tried to pull into a patch of cut-down trees but got stuck on logs and roots. 

The driver fled the scene on foot before deputies could catch them, but they found the passenger. Deputies said they later identified the passenger as Sierra Gregory. 

Deputies made contact with Gregory when she got out of the stuck vehicle with a small dog. Gregory said she did not know who the car belonged to or where it came from. She also stated that she did not know who she was riding with. 

When deputies asked Gregory about an ID they found near the car, she said it belonged to her ex-boyfriend but would not say anything else. 

Dispatch then advised that they confirmed that the vehicle was stolen from Spartanburg County. Deputies said they then searched the car and recovered the following items.

  • Clear bag of GPM located in the floorboard of the front of the vehicle
  • A clear bag containing '100' small clear baggies in the center console
  • A smoking device in the center console of the vehicle
  • 4 in-car radios located in the back seat and trunk of the vehicle
  • Milwaukee Toolset in the trunk
  • Two laptops located in the trunk
  • Digital scale in the center console
  • A clear bag containing a crystal-like substance in a pouch located in the passenger side floorboard

Due to the narcotics in the car, Gregory was charged with PWID Methamphetamine and PWID Marijuana. Her dog was turned over to her grandparents, and she was taken to the detention center. 

Deputies say the driver is facing charges related to the traffic stop for a suspended license plate and failure to stop for blue lights and sirens.
