Police Chase Suspects Arrested in Harrison County

Today, two Alabama residents are sitting in the Harrison County Adult Detention Center waiting to see a judge after a chase with police took them to Gulfport. The chase began in Baldwin County, Alabama but came to an end on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. News 25’s Bryan Kennedy has the details.
Today, traffic is back to normal on Highway 605 but last night it was a different story. Two Alabama residents, 21-year-old Charles Goss-Richards and 36-year-old Elizabeth Andrews allegedly led law enforcement authorities from five different jurisdictions on a chase between southern Alabama and Mississippi.
News 25 spoke with the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Department and they say the chase began when they arrived to the scene of a robbery and shooting. Major Anthony Lowery said, “When the deputies got on scene, the victim in that shooting was transported, but he identified the shooter and the shooter’s accomplice.”
When the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Department began investigating the two suspects, they discovered they may have carjacked a Chrysler mini-van in the Gulf Shores area. “We were able to locate them on the interstate around 7 o’clock or so,” said Major Lowery, “A deputy got behind them and the pursuit began.”
The two suspects traveled along Interstate 10 then eventually got off on the Cedar Lake exit in Biloxi. Shortly afterwards, the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department, the Biloxi and Gulfport departments and Mississippi Highway Patrol joined the chase while it weaved through northern Harrison County.
It was a spike strip laid by the Gulfport Police Department on Highway 605 that finally brought the chase to an end. The two suspects are at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center. Major Bruce Carver with Harrison County Sheriff’s Department, said, “The two subjects were booked here at the Harrison County jail and are being held without bond pending extradition.”
Both suspects face a laundry list of charges including taking away of a motor vehicle and armed robbery.
