Julian Groover was arrested Sept. 29, 2011, by the Jones County Sheriff’s Department following an ongoing investigation led by investigators Robert Reece and Gerry Nelson.
Reece said officers were waiting for Groover when he arrived at Huddle House in Gray at 10:55 p.m. When contact was attempted, the suspect got back in his Nissan and fled.
“He saw us and took off,” the investigator said. “We thought we had the area surrounded, but he went behind the grocery store and somehow got away from us.”
Reece said Sheriff Butch Reece had just received a new vehicle, and Groover actually wrecked the sheriff’s new car following a pursuit around the parking lot near Dulles Park Apartments. The cars went down the bank beside the apartment complex, and the suspect jumped out of his car and took off.
