A Hall County man was in jail Tuesday night after allegedly leading Hall County deputies on an extended car chase and foot search that lasted two hours and ended under an abandoned house. Joseph Oliver, 25, is facing multiple charges after sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Groover spotted a possible stolen car on Dawsonville Highway at 4:58 p.m. Groover, other deputies and the Georgia State Patrol chased the fleeing car from the area of Home Depot west on Dawsonville Highway, to Sardis Road, then Chestatee Road and eventually to Leach Road, said sheriff’s Lt. Brian Pearson. The man bailed out down a small road off Leach Road, Pearson said, where officers set up a perimeter and called in their dogs.
