An Elgin man faces 14 charges -- 13 by the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) one from the Elgin Police Department (EPD) stemming from a high speed chase in early September involving S.C. Highway Patrol (SCHP) troopers and Richland County Sheriffs’ Department deputies and that ended on I-26 in Richland County. Although he originally escaped on foot, Kershaw County deputies arrested Geavontay Lamar Mills, 34, of Smyrna Road, Elgin, on Monday following an investigation that began after the chase on Sept. 9. According to a KCSO incident report, a deputy was en route to the sheriff’s office when he spotted a blue Ford F-250 pickup truck with its flashers pulling a black dump trailer behind it at Madness Motorcycles on Main Street in Elgin.
