On 5-8-20 at approximately 11:45 a.m. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a stolen Jeep Wrangler that was northbound into our county from Bay County on Hwy 231. As the Deputy entered Cottondale he observed the suspect vehicle turn off of Hwy 231 onto a side street. As the Deputy approached the vehicle with his lights and siren activated, the suspect fled and drove into a wooded area where the patrol vehicle could not go, but later re-emerged from the woods and the pursuit continued northbound on Hwy 231 at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. The driver passed vehicles on the shoulder of the road and in the median while attempting to evade Law Enforcement. After a 10.2 mile pursuit the suspect vehicle sustained a flat tire and the pursuit came to an end just south of Campbellton. The driver, Brandon James Pasko, was taken into to custody and charged with Aggravated Fleeing or Attempting to Elude, Driving While License Suspended or Revoked, and Grand Theft Auto. The passenger, who reportedly participated in the vehicle theft, Melissa Sue Smith, was charged with Principal to Grand Theft of a Vehicle. Both were lodged in the Jackson County Correctional Facility to await first appearance.
