Sequatchie and Hamilton County Deputies are looking for a suspect who escaped on foot after a car chase Wednesday on Highway 111 in Sequatchie County. Officers say that a driver in an alleged stolen black Toyota Celica failed to stop after being signaled to in Hamilton County. The pursuit led to Sequatchie County where the vehicle left the roadway, crossing a field and onto a trail in an attempt to escape. Officers say they saw the woman in the passenger seat throw a gun out of the car onto Highway 27 near the Hixson Pike exit. The gun was later found by deputies. Deputies say the vehicle stopped on Hwy 111 near Shell Road, where the suspects escaped on foot. The female passenger, Karie Harper, was arrested on the scene. Deputies say Hamilton County K-9 units tracked the man, who they have tentatively identified as Alvin Dale Shirley, but his track was lost. If you have any information, please call the Sequatchie County Sheriff’s Department at 423-949-7750, or the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department at 423-622-0022.
