More details have been released in a story we brought you Tuesday evening regarding suspected shoplifters. A 60-year-old man was arrested and an arrest warrant is being sought for another man, both of whom were believed to have shoplifted meat and hygiene products from Marvin's Food Warehouse in Sallisaw Tuesday afternoon. Sallisaw Police Chief Terry Franklin said Wednesday that a pursuit began when police tried to stop the two, who were driving a gold Dodge Neon. The chase went west on Interstate 40 at about 4 p.m. when Sequoyah County Sheriff's deputies joined in. The suspects left the interstate at the Dwight Mission Road exit, west of Sallisaw, and proceeded to go west on U.S. Highway 64. The authorities stopped the car at the S curve just east of Vian. Franklin said one of the three persons in the car was taken into custody there. He has been identified as Victor Lamonte Williams, 60, of Vian. The driver of the vehicle ran from officers, and was last seen running down the railroad right-of way. He was not apprehended, but Franklin said the 33-year-old Gore resident was identified by the two other occupants of the car, and the suspect left his driver's license in the car. Franklin said he could not release the name of the suspect until an arrest warrant was issued. The third person in the car was not involved in the shoplifting, Franklin said, and was not arrested.
