Two adults from Memphis, Tenn., were arrested on Sunday, March 13, after attempting to flee from Cass County Sheriff’s Office deputies.
Tairnika L. Collins, 33, of Memphis and James E. Wells, 30, also from Memphis, are facing charges stemming from a police chase. According to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office, the two suspects tried to drive off during what was thought to be a routine traffic stop.
On Sunday afternoon, deputies attempted to stop a vehicle driven by Collins near Highway 7 and Walker Road for speeding. Collins refused to stop. A pursuit ensued.
Collins led the chase through the city streets of Harrisonville before going back to Interstate 49. Deputies successfully deployed a tire deflation device on I-49 just south of Peculiar. Collins drove the car to Highway J where it disabled after hitting a curb. She was promptly arrested.
Wells dropped a large amount of cash while fleeing the scene. He was arrested after a short foot chase. In addition to nearly $35,000 in cash, deputies found methamphetamine, Fentanyl, and several other controlled substances.
Collins was charged with Resisting Arrest by Fleeing with a cash-only bond set at $5,000. Wells was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with a cash-only bond of $7,500.
Both are currently in custody in the Cass County jail. The Missouri State Highway Patrol, Harrisonville Police Department, and Peculiar Police Department assisted with the pursuit.
