A Selma man remained jailed Sunday for getting police in a high-speed chase in a stolen car, which ended on Dallas Ave. when he crashed into a produce market.
Deandre Jerome McDole, 21, of 113 Wheeler Ave., remains in the Dallas County jail on $20,000 bond. He is charged with receiving stolen property and criminal mischief after McDole attempted to elude Dallas County Sheriffs Deputies and Selma Police officers.
Bees dined on spoiled produce and passersby stared at the police-taped spectacle caused when McDole took out the support beams holding up the roof of the fruit stand. Broken glass littered the sidewalk outside Selma’s only open-air fruit stand that sustained &8220;major damage.&8221;
According to police reports, McDole caused an estimated $10,000 in damage to Cleckler’s Produce Market.
The 2005 Nissan Altima &045; reported stolen shortly after 10 p.m. Saturday from an apartment on Pettus St. &045; ended up lodged inside a pile of debris created when the vehicle crashed into the building at 809 Dallas Ave.
Edree Williams of 217-A Pettus St., reported the car stolen just after 10 p.m. Police apparently spotted the vehicle and a chase ensued, before crashing into the produce market before 10:30 p.m. Police said McDole sustained &8220;minor scratches and bruises&8221; as a result of the crash.
An unidentified driver of a late model Pontiac collided with a Sheriff’s department cruiser, causing major damage to both vehicles. There was no information available Sunday on their condition. Both were reportedly transported to a local hospital and treated for injuries.
