October 20, 2010 - On Tuesday afternoon two detectives with the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office observed suspicious activity at the Wachovia Bank on Town Lake Parkway in Woodstock. Detectives watched as different individuals exited a van parked behind the bank. The suspects entered the bank separately. The van began to leave the parking lot with one of the passengers still inside the bank. Detectives attempted to pull the vehicle over. As one of the detectives approached the van on foot, the van sped away on Town Lake Parkway towards Interstate 575 leaving one of the passengers still in the bank. The Woodstock Police assisted in pursuing the van southbound on 575 into Cobb County. The Cobb County Police then took over the pursuit which ended on South Marietta Parkway. There were four suspects in the van. The suspects fled on foot. Three suspects were immediately captured, however, one escaped.
