A teen has been arrested after leading police on a chase in a stolen vehicle.
Columbia Police tried to stop a car listed as stolen on Columbia College Road, said Richland County Sheriff's Department spokesman Curtis Wilson. Police were led on a high-speed chase before wrecking at Montecello Road near Ensor Avenue. Two people ran from the vehicle, and police were able to capture Savoyy Woodard, 18. He is charged with possession of a stolen vehicle and armed robbery.
The vehicle was reported stolen Thursday night. A man said he pulled into his driveway in the 100 block of Old Brass Drive off of Clemson Road in Pontiac and a man pulled out a gun and demanded the vehicle, Wilson said.
The Richland County Sheriff's Department is still investigating the incident and is looking for the second suspect who ran from the wrecked car. Woodard is being held at Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center on a $3,500 bond.
