An Augusta County man is in jail today after leading police nearly 6 miles from Waynesboro to Stuarts Draft on a chase. Just after 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 3, a Waynesboro police officer attempted to pull over the driver of a vehicle for having improper registration. The officer also had information that the driver, Larry Eugene Hurt Jr., 35, possessed a large amount of methamphetamine.

Instead of pulling over, Hurt accelerated in his Toyota pickup truck, heading south on Lyndhurst Road toward Augusta County. When Hurt drove over the Lyndhurst Road bridge crossing the South River, the officer saw him throw a black bag out of the truck. Waynesboro police later recovered the bag, which had methamphetamine and instruments to help distribute it, inside. Police officials say the bag had an estimated 35 grams of methamphetamine inside.
