Four suspects were booked into the Hall County Jail and face charges related to a car chase Friday, Sept. 28, that began in South Hall County and ended in Gwinnett County.

Devin William Hall, 33 of Miami, Florida; Larry Dwayne Norwood, 27, of Atlanta; Danielle Azzilee Bunch, 20, of Powder Springs; and Joy Marie Galliher, 41, of Atlanta, were arrested following the chase. 

A fifth suspect remains at large, according to a news release from Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derreck Booth. He is described as a black man wearing black shorts and a T-shirt.

Norwood faces numerous charges, including driving on a suspended license, reckless driving, fleeing and attempting to elude, felony obstruction of an officer, possession of a gun by a convicted felon, possession of a gun during the commission of a crime and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

Bunch was charged with possession of a gun during the commission of a crime, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and possession of a gun with an altered identity mark.

Galliher was charged with two counts of ID theft/fraud for possessing fraudulent out-of-state driver’s licenses.

Hall was charged with speeding, DUI of drugs and having an expired tag.

Norwood and Galliher are being held without bond. Bunch’s bond was set at $19,300 and Hall’s at $2,110.

The vehicle carrying three men were stopped for speeding on Friendship Road just before 3 p.m. Friday. As Hall, driver of the silver BMW, was being detained, Norwood stepped out of the vehicle and got into an altercation with the deputy who had ordered him back into the car, the sheriff’s office reported.

In the midst of the struggle, the other passenger in the BMW fled to nearby woods. Norwood escaped and fled to nearby Friendship Farms Subdivision while Hall remained with the vehicle, Booth reported.

Additional deputies and Flowery Branch Police responded as law enforcement was told of a possible carjacking and kidnapping after Norwood fled to the subdivision and got into a 2015 white Nissan Sentra with two women believed to be strangers, the report stated. It was later determined they were acquainted and no carjacking took place.

Georgia State Patrol was called for assistance as the Sentra reached Interstate 85 near Pleasant Hill Road in Gwinnett County before the vehicle was stopped by a trooper performing a pursuit intervention technique, which caused Norwood to lose control. The car wrecked, but no one was hurt.

Booth reported that deputies found several small pieces of crack cocaine, a handgun with an altered serial number and an undisclosed amount of cash in the Nissan.

Deputies, along with K-9 units' assistance, were unable to find the other suspect after he fled to the woods in Hall County.
