A high-speed vehicle chase which began on East Thompson Street and ended on East Walker Street resulted in felony charges against 21-year-old Jere Austin Edwards Friday night, according to a report from Thomaston Police Department.

Officer Shane Morgan witnessed a Chevrolet Trailblazer spinning tires turning from Avenue L onto East Thompson, and the vehicle failed to stop for Morgan’s blue lights. Instead, the Chevy turned left onto Glendale Road and crossed East Main without stopping at a stop sign, the report stated.

The vehicle turned onto East Gordon Street and reached a maximum speed of 73 miles per hour in a posted 25 zone, then ran through a second stop sign turning left onto South Bethel Street and through a third stop sign turning right onto East Lee Street, Officer Morgan said.
