Press release via VSP Richmond on 2.25.14

At about 11:30 p.m. Friday (Feb. 21), Virginia State Police initiated a traffic stop on an Chevrolet Blazer on Route 60 in Nelson County. The driver of the vehicle, Jason T. Cash, 35, of Buckingham County, Va., refused to stop and a pursuit was initiated. The pursuit continued through Nelson County, during which two state police patrol cars were damaged by the suspect’s vehicle. As the suspect vehicle traveled down Norwood Road it crashed and Cash then fled on foot. State police and the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office set up a perimeter to search for the pursuit suspect. An extensive search of the area failed to locate Cash.

Later it was discovered that after Cash ran from the scene on foot, he stole a vehicle from a residence and left the area. Further investigation by state police led investigators to a residence Saturday (Feb. 22) in the 4700 block of Green Creek Road where Cash was taken into custody without incident. Cash is currently being held on previous outstanding warrants for his arrest.

Charges related to Friday’s incidents are still pending at this time. The incident remains under investigation
