On Monday July 8, 2019 at 8:03pm a woman called 911 to report that she and her friends had met two men to buy marijuana in the 4100 block of Masseyline Church road in Pinson and the men robbed them. The victim reported that the men had a weapon and took her money and her car. Deputies later spotted the car near highway 151 and tried to initiate a traffic stop. The driver refused to stop and rammed a patrol vehicle while attempting to get away. Deputies pursued the car to some apartments on Bond Circle in Center Point. The suspects jumped out of the car and ran. Deputies were able to capture the passenger while the driver fled into a wooded area. Deputies searched the area but were unable to locate the driver.
19-year-old Carlos Dion Harper was arrested and charged with Robbery 1st degree and Resisting Arrest. His bonds total $40,300.00. Sheriff’s Detectives are continuing this investigation. Detectives will be identifying the driver and obtaining warrants against him.
