From the Weldon Police Department:

On Saturday around 1:45 a.m., Sgt. L. Melton was approached by a female subject at the WPD and she advised that her vehicle had been stolen. The female victim was able to tell Melton, who took her vehicle and gave him a description of the vehicle and suspect. Melton then passed that information along to Cpl. S. McKimmey, who was able to locate that vehicle on U.S. Highway 158 near Chestnut Street.

McKimmey attempted to stop the vehicle when it turned right onto Washignton Avenue and the vehicle accelerated. McKimmey then chased the vehicle south on Washington Avenue ending up on East 11th Street. At this time the driver jumped out of the vehicle and ran.

Cpl. McKimmey was unable to catch the driver at this time, but the driver was located by Deputy Smith of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office soon after. The driver was identified as Edward Lamont Everett III, 22, of Weldon. He was placed under arrest and taken before a Halifax County magistrate.

Everett was charged with motor vehicle theft, simple assault, assault on a female, misdemeanor larceny, no operator’s license, fictitious registration, left of center, misdemeanor flee to elude arrest, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, resisting a public officer, reckless driving to endanger, operate vehicle with no insurance, speeding and driving while impaired. Everett received a $13,000 secured bond with a Feb. 12 court date.

“I would like to thank all of the Halifax County deputies who assisted during this incident,” Chief Chris Davis said. “This is just another case where working together ended up with a positive outcome.”
