GLOUCESTER — Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) is asking for public assistance in locating a wanted man.
On the morning of Saturday, Sept. 18, a GCSO deputy observed a wanted subject, 31-year-old Jared Joseph Kellum of Wicomico, operating a vehicle while traveling south on George Washington Memorial Highway.
Confirming the suspect had active warrants for a probation violation and two counts of failure to appear, the deputy attempted to alert the driver to stop by initiating his emergency lights and sirens.
Authorities say that the suspect failed to yield to the attempted traffic stop and proceeded south on George Washington Memorial Highway at a high rate of speed.
The suspect ran the stop light at George Washington Memorial Highway and Hickory Fork Rd and continued south. He then made a left turn on Brays Point Road and struck a phone line box where the vehicle came to a stop.
The suspect then exited the vehicle and fled the scene on foot. Authorities say that, despite an extensive search of the area, the suspect was not located.
GCSO has obtained additional arrest warrants on Kellum, who is described as a white male, 5’7 and 150 lbs.
Kellum’s additional charges include felony evade and elude, driving suspended fourth offense, reckless driving by speed, failure to stop at a traffic signal, possession of a schedule I/II controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and obstruction of justice.
GCSO is asking for anyone with information as to his whereabouts to contact the GGCSO at 804-693-3890 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
Callers may remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash award if their information leads to an arrest in the case.
