On September 3rd, field training ranger Jay Drinkwater and field trainee Sasha Herrin attempted to stop a vehicle for speeding on the parkway. The driver tried to elude them by turning off the parkway onto a county road, then a dirt road leading into an agricultural field. The driver then bailed out and fled on foot. The rangers gave chase but were unable to catch the individual. State and local agencies responded to lend assistance. A perimeter was set up and K-9 units were brought in, but they were unable to locate the suspect. A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of 108 pounds of marijuana. The investigation is ongoing and being conducted in cooperation with North Mississippi Drug Task Force, with leads being followed up in Texas and Mississippi.
