CHIPLEY – A Chipley resident is at large and facing multiple charges after eluding Chipley police officers Thursday, April 15.
Police Chief Scott Thompson reports that an investigator with the Chipley Police Department conducted the traffic stop, and recognized the driver as 40-year-old Nyriah Allen-Hope of Chipley, who was knowingly driving on a suspended license.
Allen-Hope subsequently requested a uniformed officer. The investigator requested a uniform patrol officer at the traffic stop. The uniformed patrol officer made contact with Allen-Hope who after a request to exit the vehicle, locked the doors, rolled the window up, placed the vehicle in drive and began to drive off.
