At approximately 3:45 p.m. today, Banks County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a report of a home invasion on Mount Sinai Road in Lula. Shortly thereafter, a Banks County 9-1-1 call was dispatched out regarding a burglary on Highway 98 in Homer.
“The descriptions that were reported at both scenes by witnesses were similar,” said Sgt. Carissa M. McFaddin, OPS/PIO. “A BOLO was then forwarded to surrounding counties.”
Hall County deputies located a vehicle matching the description in the Lula area and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. This led to a pursuit, which ended shortly due to the driver losing control of the vehicle.
Both the driver, Tommy Woodruff, 34, and the passenger, Debby Bostick, 37, were taken into custody and transported to the Banks County Law Enforcement Center to face felony charges.
Additional felony charges are pending through the Hall County Sheriff's Department stemming from the vehicle pursuit.
