Pursuit leads to two arrests in Currituck County

The Currituck County Sheriff’s Office has reported that on December 3, 2020 at around 12:02 a.m., CCSO took over a pursuit that started in Southern Shores. Stop sticks were deployed in front of the Weeping Radish restaurant in Grandy. The suspect’s vehicle struck the sticks and pulled into the Shell gas station.

“Suspects now identified as Zachery Marion and Chynna Thompson did not adhere to the commands to exit the vehicle as the officers approached,” stated a release from CCSO. “A deputy attempted to assist the driver, Marion, out the vehicle. Marion then drove off.”

CCSO reported the vehicle fled northbound on Hwy. 158 and that deputies were able to stop the vehicle after a short low speed pursuit due to blown tires.
