SOUTH BOSTON, Va. (WFXR) — Three teenagers are currently facing charges following a Friday afternoon police chase — both in a vehicle and on foot — in South Boston.

The South Boston Police Department says officers tried to pull over a silver Kia — which turned out to be stolen from Lynchburg — at approximately 2:45 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 12, but the Kia driver led South Boston officers on a short pursuit before coming to a stop. Then, the driver and two passengers got out of the vehicle and ran into the woods.

Police say they were able to catch two of the three people that ran off, with the help of Virginia State Police and the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.

According to authorities, the driver of the vehicle — 18-year-old Savion Howard of South Boston — was arrested and charged with felony eluding. 

Meanwhile, the second person — identified by officials as 19-year-old A’Ziyah Easley of South Boston — was charged with obstruction.

Following the pursuit, the department says the Pittsylvania County Sheriff’s Office and Virginia State Police provided two K-9s, who tracked the third person for approximately three miles, but were unable to find them.

Then, on Thursday, Aug. 18, police announced that they filed an obstruction of justice charge against a 17-year-old South Boston resident who had run off after last week’s vehicle chase.

Authorities tell WFXR News the investigation is still ongoing and charges are pending on the third person.  Investigator C. Collie is leading this investigation for the South Boston Police Department. 

“The juvenile petition has been served on the defendant,” officials stated.
