Byron police searching for suspects who fled

Byron police officers are searching an area for three suspects who fled an attempted traffic stop.

According to a post on the department’s Facebook page, officers attempted to stop a car on Interstate 75 for speeding. A chase ensued, which ended in the Brandon Hills subdivision.

Two black males and a white female, possibly with red hair, ran from the vehicle. Officers are searching an area that includes Champagne Drive, Kay Road, Barker Road and the Ga. 247 connector. Anyone who spots the suspects is asked to call 911 and not to approach them.

“We do not know if they are armed or why they ran,” the post stated.
