On 12 Sep 18 Det. Sgt. Smeeks received a BOLO from dispatch in reference to a carjacking in the city of Marietta. The last known location of the vehicle was State Route 7 southbound. Sgt. Smeeks was on SR 7 and was monitoring traffic when a red Chevrolet station wagon type vehicle passed his location. Sgt. Seeks followed the vehicle until confirmation could be made that this was the vehicle in question. Once the driver observed Sgt. Smeeks following him, in an unmarked vehicle, he changed lanes and quickly accelerated. Emergency lights and sirens were activated. The driver of the vehicle being pursued drove close to the bumpers of vehicles in front of them, as well as passing in the median. The vehicle continued, driving off the side of the roadway, eventually running a red light at Main Street, Belpre. The suspect vehicle was observed passing vehicles while driving on the Memorial Bridge. The suspect was identified by the Marietta Police Department as Jeffrey David Dugan. A warrant was issued for Dugan on a charge of robbery. On 17 Sep 18 Dugan turned himself in at the Washington County Jail on the warrant. Sgt. Smeeks viewed the photographs of Dugan and confirmed him being the individual pursued on State Route 7 on 12 Sep 18, which fled into West Virginia. Based on the fact that Dugan was traveling in excess of 120 MPH during rush hour traffic, driving off the roadway to pass vehicles, driving through a red light, and failing to stop during an 8 mile pursuit, a charge of failure to comply was filed on Jeffrey David Dugan, age 35, 2500 Lincoln Avenue, Parkersburg, WV. This charge is a felony of the 3rd degree.
