The following is a Press Release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

On March 26, at approximately 11:00 p.m., deputies with the Cameron Parish Sheriff's Office noticed a suspicious car without a license plate on Highway 385.  When the deputy activated his unit's lights and sirens signaling for the driver to stop, the driver did not comply and continued to flee from him.

After the driver entered Calcasieu Parish, CPSO Cpl. Mike Williams joined in the pursuit at the intersection of McNeese Street and Louisiana Avenue.  The driver of the car began to drive very aggressively, traveling at speeds in excess of 100 mph, and crashed the car into a metal fence and a parked vehicle at the Holiday Inn at the intersection of Highway 14 and Opelousas Street. 

The front passenger, Cody M. Gobert, 22, of Lake Charles, fled on foot and was quickly apprehended by CPSO K9 "Bart" and his handler Cpl. Bradley Guidry.  The driver, Justin K. Miller, 22, and passenger Jamall J. Miller, 21, both of Lake Charles, were detained without incident.

During a search of the car, deputies recovered numerous tools with duct tape wrapped around the handles, a large vehicle jack, gloves and several other burglary tools from inside the car. 

Further investigation by detectives with the CPSO Vehicle Crimes Unit revealed Gobert and Justin Miller were attempting to steal a 4-wheeler in Cameron Parish, and fled when the deputy arrived. 

Justin Miller and Gobert were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center.  Miller, who was wanted through LA Probation and Parole for a probation violation, is charged with aggravated flight from an officer; possession of burglary tools; driving under suspension; and wreck less operation.   Gobert is charged with possession of burglary tools; and resisting an officer.                

Their bonds are still pending.
