The first pursuit originated in Greene County, they got away from the deputies in Greene.

State Police saw them again later and a second pursuit started. They must be good, out ran cops in two pursuits in one night.

@true - Coming from Rocky Mount you probably know what a drug addict looks like. Every morning in the mirror your probably reminded. Because his hair is slightly long and he has a beard you start assuming. You may be right though, but don't be so quick to judge. Maybe he was scared, we wont know till he is apprehended.
@1 wine o 4 u - Just to let you know Mr. Wineo Alcohol is also a drug. Hypocrite...

They aren't that good. Remember that the number one priority in Greene is finding out who keeps taking them signs! They was distracted

Perhaps having identified the subjects, the police chose not to endanger themselves and the public by continuing their pursuit. It appears that Mr. Cook already has his mugshot on file, these two might fall into the category of "known to police". Perhaps by letting them run, they can identify their partners in crime as well, and get some information during questioning.

The mug shot flies in the face of you average profile. Goes to show crime runs across all socio-economic backgrounds. But with all the resources at and for the Va troopers, how were they able to just run away? I was also wondering what kind of car they were in, must of been a fast one.

The bad guys were driving a red 1990 Dodge. Nor sure what model though.

Most troopers have 4,000 pound Crown Victorias, probably 5000 pounds after adding all the equipment and driver. They have 250 horsepower engines. They're about the slowest car on the highway today.

In the Michigan State Police testing of 2011 models, top speed on the Crown Victoria with a 250 horsepower V-8 was 129 mph. The top speed of the 233 horsepower 6 cylinder Chevrolet Impala was 138 mph. The Chevrolet Tahoe V-8 with 320 horsepower came in with a top speed of 139 mph. Do the math and you can see why the weak dog Crown Victorias can't catch anything when a person decides to run.

Crown Victorias are bought for size and comfort, not catching people. For better gas mileage and top speed the state police should be using the V-6 Chevrolet Impalas.

When Greene County lost sight of the bad guys, they had not yet been identified. Greene County broke off ONLY because they were outrun and lost sight of them.

Horse power is great but you reach a certain speed driver ability takes over. Running at high speeds I'd rather be in a big boat with good gription than a little screamer. But its over now and they're BOL. I've noticed a lot of unmarked state cars with dual exhaust, they don't look too slow. But I don't really care, the last speeding ticket I got was in 1973 for 35 in 25. When I lived in Chicago in the late 60's the cops drove Pontiac Bonnevilles. What a boat. You could here them a block away when they punched it cause the engine would just moan and moan till the car caught up with the torque.

But they are. They're dogs.

Can't judge much anymore by the dual exhausts. Everything is getting dual exhausts now. On most vehicles it's just for appearance now.

The best car chase ever was in the 68 movie "Bullitt". Steve McQueen drove the heck out of that Mustang. Wonder if last nights was like that one?

Guess the police were too full of coffee and donuts to chase them on foot! Check their licenses for addresses-look there!

Dear lord, you must be slipping. Cops giving up a chase and having to admit one got away? never. The circumstances must of dictated they're decision, not reason.

You really shouldn't judge what you don't know......just a thought. Usually the people constantly critical of police are those that don't like to follow the laws.
