Man eludes Creedmoor police after high-speed chase

Posted February 4, 2015

— A 21-year-old man led police on a high-speed chase through two counties Wednesday afternoon before escaping capture.

Creedmoor police stopped a 2008 Chevrolet Impala driven by Tyricus Lawan White, who was wanted for a Jan. 31 drive-by shooting. White took off, leading police on a vehicle pursuit through Granville and Wake counties that reached speeds in excess of 100 mph, police said.

The chase ended at 3076 Blackley Road after White’s vehicle struck a tree. White was able to escape on foot.

White is described as a thin light-skinned black male, 5 feet 8 inches tall, approximately 150 pounds with medium length hair.

Anyone with information regarding White’s whereabouts is asked to contact Creedmoor police at (919) 528-1515.

    And how would you have handled it since you seem to be a law enforcement expert?

    Sounds like the Creedmoor police got tired and quit. Did the ever call for a K9 unit?? Are there none in that region of the country?? Maybe they though that some citizen would see him cowering under a porch and pop him for them.

    won't be long ... he'll be caught

    Good money says he will end up getting arrested in the next few days living at friends, cousin, or grandmas house. What else is he going to do, move to Austria and live under a false identity. Its not like he is going to live in the woods, especially in cold weather.

    I live in the area of where he crashed. He drove down a long dirt driveway and hit a tree; he ran into the woods behind my house and was seen in a yard of a neighbor on the other side of the block of woods WITH A GUN, so don't let the baby-face fool ya. It was an all-out search until right before dard and then all of a sudden, it was called off. Needless to say, nobody in the neighborhood slept well last night. Don't understand at all why dogs were not brought in to sniff out car and then let loose in the woods to track him. Also don't understand why the search was called off and police presence just GONE. But you can best believe all us Granville folks were prepared to meet him if he had stumbled onto our property. LEO wouldn't have to worry about him anymore, it would be a coroner issue.
