Just after 6:00 AM today, Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies were alerted to several individuals driving through a neighborhood near Big Sky Cove in McCalla.  The caller advised that the subjects were breaking into vehicles and gave a description of the suspects, as well as the vehicle they were driving.

About five minutes later, deputies located the suspect vehicle and attempted to make a stop.  The driver of the vehicle refused to stop and attempted to elude deputies. During the pursuit, the driver attempted to maneuver through the drive through at the Wells Fargo Bank on Bessemer Road but was unable to maintain control of the vehicle.  The F150 pickup crashed into the bank’s ATM.

Deputies arrested 18-year-old, Isiah Coleman, along with two juvenile suspects.  During the investigation, it was discovered that Coleman had outstanding warrants associated with a September 2nd, shooting in Fairfield.  Coleman was transported to the Jefferson County Jail in Bessemer on existing charges of attempted murder and shooting into an occupied building.  Additional charges of receiving stolen property and attempting to elude have been added.  His bonds are currently set at $108,000.00.
