According to a Gordon County Sheriff’s Office incident report, on Sunday, July 25th, 2021, at approximately 11:40 PM, Deputy Stevens was patrolling Folsom Road in reference to a suspicious male subject in a white ski mask seen in the area. According to the report, “Deputy Stevens observed a silver vehicle pass his unit near Yarborough Mill Road traveling northbound. Due to the suspicious activity in the area, Deputy Stevens attempted to get behind the vehicle and identify it. Deputy Stevens noticed the silver passenger car turn left onto Cornelison Road and began to pull away at a high rate of speed. Deputy Stevens advised a nearby unit that the vehicle was trying to evade him. Deputy Stevens at this time had probable cause for a traffic stop due to excessive speed.” The vehicle made the next right-hand turn onto private property at 846 Cornelison Road, which is a chicken farm. The deputy activated his emergency equipment and pulled into the gravel driveway in pursuit of the vehicle. The silver passenger car then turned left between the last two chicken houses and drove down the alleyway toward two feed bins that blocked the path. According to the report, “The suspect vehicle then stopped abruptly striking one of the feed bins and damaging a support leg. Deputy Stevens held the driver at gunpoint until another deputy arrived on the scene. The female suspect, identified as Hanna Mariene Lusk, 38, of Calhoun, is into custody. Lusk agreed to speak to deputies regarding the incident. According to the report, “She stated she saw law enforcement and was scared and knew she had no license, so she decided to flee. Ms. Lusk’s information returned through 911-dispatch with two active warrants.” Lusk was transported to the Gordon County Jail, charged with fleeing, attempting to elude, too fast for conditions, driving while license suspended, probation violation, and theft by shoplifting through Gordon County Probate Court.
