Traffic stop attempt leads to chase
Elijah Jaquan Cone
What started as a simple traffic stop for a tag light violation led to a police chase Thursday night that ended in a forced halt on a county road. A Statesboro police officer attempted to stop Elijah Jaquan Cone, 20, Lewis Street, for a tag light violation, but Cone would not stop, said Statesboro Police Sgt. Jake Saxon. Cone fled from the Georgia Southern University campus/Lanier Road area to Langston Chapel Road, then continued fleeing throughout the south side of the city and into the county, driving out Hwy. 301 South, until he reached A.J. Riggs Road.
