PURSUIT LANDS MAN IN JAIL ON DRUG AND GUN CHARGES
On July 9, 2017, Detective Jonathon Simpson was on patrol in the downtown area when he observed a male subject he knew as Terrence S. Bailey, Age 26, driving a motorcycle. Detective Simpson believed that Terrence did not have a valid license. Jefferson County Central Dispatch informed Detective Simpson that Terrence had a suspended license.
Detective Simpson relayed the information to Detective Kurtis Wallace and Ptl. Kyle Cutshaw, who were in the area. Detective Wallace located Terrence near the intersection of Broadway and Fifth Street. Detective Wallace attempted to perform a traffic stop on the motorcycle, but the motorcycle failed to yield for Detective Wallace and began accelerating up Michigan Hill Road.
Officers pursued the vehicle, which quickly gained distance. As officers were approaching Fairmount Drive, they were informed by a citizen that a motorcycle turned onto Fairmount Drive. Officers began searching the area. While in the Fairmount area, a resident stated that a motorcycle was quickly accelerating on Farimount Drive toward the end of the road.
Detective Wallace and Ptl. Cutshaw located Terrence parked near a tree near a residence. Officers exited their patrol vehicles and ordered Terrence to the ground. Terrence initially refused officers commands, but eventually went to the ground. Terrence was placed into handcuffs.
During a search of Terrence, officers located an empty holster in his waistband. Lt. Bruce Heaton and Jefferson County Sheriff Deputies Brent Bennett and Nate Green arrived to assist. During a search of the area where Terrence was located, officers located a plastic bag with a white substance. Also near the motorcycle was a Taurus revolver. Terrence was then transported to the Jefferson County Jail. The white substance found near the motorcycle tested positive for methamphetamine.
