Man wanted after high-speed chase


NAVASSA, NC (WWAY) – Police say a wanted man led them on a high-speed chase this weekend in Brunswick County.

Navassa Police say they were doing a license check early Sunday morning, when a driver reversed and sped away.

20-year-old Kadeem Hall was already wanted for parole violations. Now he is in more trouble.

Police say when Hall saw the blue lights, he immediately turned around and took off in the other direction, leading officers on a 5-mile, high-speed chase topping out at 112 mph.

Police Chief Preston Howell says Hall was supposed to be wearing a tracking device at the time of the chase.

“He was on probation. He was on house arrest. He was supposed to be wearing an ankle monitor. We found alcohol in the car and some pills. We haven’t identified them yet, but we are working on that, so that is why he was running. He knew that he was outside of his probation,” said Chief Preston Howell, Navassa Police Department.

Multiple agencies were involved, including the Leland Police Department, Northwest Police Department and the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office.

Hall’s chase led police to woods near his home he shares with his parents.

“After he wrecked the other units came out and helped secure the area, and the county put their dog down trying to locate the subject,” said Howell.

Hall has been in trouble with the law before. He’s been convicted of trespassing, breaking and entering and drugs.

He also has a pending charge for simple assault.

Chief Howell says he is thankful for the agencies that helped his department during the chase.

“We work real well together, so when stuff like this happens, we all come together as a group, and it was unfortunate that we didn’t find him that night,” said Howell.

Police are still looking for Hall.

If you have any information on where he might, call the Navassa Police Department (910) 371-0155.
