VALDOSTA — A suspect wanted on several outstanding warrants has been arrested by Valdosta Police.

Back in late November, Georgia State Patrol, the Valdosta Police Department and the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office, joined together and conducted DUI checkpoints at several locations in Lowndes County.

A driver, Terrell Williams, drove through one of the checkpoints and attempted to give false information regarding his identity to officers. At one point, Williams fled the scene in his vehicle, almost hitting a Georgia State Trooper.

Officers pursued Williams, but he was able to avoid capture. Eighteen Arrest Warrants were later signed against Williams, to include Aggravated Assault on a Peace Officer, Fleeing or Attempting to Elude, Obstruction of an officer and Giving False Information.

This week, Valdosta Police Officers Jeff Stokes and Travis Jordan, aware of the outstanding Arrest Warrants for Williams, traced him to a possible address on Forsyth Place. The two officers set up surveillance of the residence and eventually saw Williams exit the house and enter a car in the driveway. These officers approached Williams and placed him into custody on his outstanding warrants.

“I am proud of the effort Officers Stokes and Jordan took in locating this offender. It is because of their diligence that a dangerous offender is off the streets”, said Chief Brian Childress.
