Car Stolen at 3AM, Suspect Arrested Shortly After

This morning at approximately 4AM while on patrol in the area of Georgia Road and Shiloh Estates Road in Hickory Tavern, a deputy observed a vehicle matching the description of a vehicle stolen from Clinton at approximately 3AM. The deputy did attempt to initiate a traffic stop and the driver refused to stop, accelerating to high rates of speed, disregarding stop signs, and failing to maintain lane of travel. Eventually the vehicle was disabled and the pursuit ended in the area of Dial Place. Russell Lee Ivester Jr. of Laurens was taken into custody and transported to the Laurens Detention Center where he will be charged as follows:

Grand Larceny

Driving Under Suspension 2nd Offense

Failure to Stop for Blue Lights 2nd or Subsequent Offense


“I want to commend the deputies for their swift actions this morning, resulting in a quick arrest. This thug has an extensive history of breaking the law and putting other citizens at risk. He’s where he belongs- in our detention center. Let’s hope the court system keeps him there.” -Sheriff Don Reynolds
