On Jan. 23 at approximately 2:05 p.m., Hillsboro Police officers observed a male subject who was known to have a warrant for his arrest driving a vehicle in the 200 block of East Pleasant Street.

Officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop, and the subject failed to comply with the order of the police officer and fled in the vehicle south on state Route 247. The pursuit continued through New Market, ending on Mad River Road, when the vehicle pulled into a driveway of a residence in the 4000 block of Mad River Road.



One male and one female exited the vehicle, fleeing on foot. Officers were able to quickly apprehend both subjects.

In addition, Cooper is being charged with failure to comply with order or signal of police officer, a felony of the third degree. The passenger was identified as Anna Debo, 18, of Hillsboro, who also had an outstanding warrant.

Both subjects were transported to the Highland County Justice Center and are scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 27 in the Hillsboro Municipal Court.
