Two men who ran from a wreck in Banks County on Thursday were caught after an all-day manhunt.
Roger Wayne Stockton, 40, Maysville was located at an address on Gillsville Lake Road after a citizen contacted 911 regarding his whereabouts.
Kelly Ian Waldrop, 35, Commerce, was located walking on Queen Road shortly after Stockton was located at approximately 4:45 p.m.
Stockton was charged with theft by receiving a stolen vehicle, fleeing or attempting to elude, reckless driving, weaving over roadway and obstruction of officers.
Waldrop was charged with obstruction of officers. Both were arrest and transported to Banks County Law Enforcement Center.
The incident began when deputies were conducting a safety checkpoint on Carson Segars Road when a gold BMW that was approaching the checkpoint began quickly and recklessly backing up in the roadway. The driver then turned the vehicle around and continued at a high rate of speed in the opposite direction. Deputies pursued the vehicle until the driver lost control at the intersection of Carson Segars Road and Highway 323. Deputies were notified by the dispatch center that the vehicle was stolen out of North Carolina.
The driver, Stockton, and a rear passenger, Waldrop, both fled the scene which led to the day-long search. Two additional passengers exited the vehicle and were detained. It was discovered that one of the remaining passengers, Tommy Chester Tench, 37, Maysville, had outstanding warrants in Banks County and Jackson County. He was also charged with obstruction of office and possession of a dangerous drug. The other remaining passenger, Sheena Marie McGonigle, 30, Homer, was found to have outstanding warrants in Jackson County.
Jackson County deputies responded to the scene to detain and transport McGonigle.
