The two home invasion suspects pursued Monday by Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputies have been charged with burglary and numerous traffic offenses, officials said.

Tommy Woodruff, 34, and Debby Bostick, 37, both of Canton were charged with four counts of burglary relating to home invasion suspicions, said Banks County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Carissa McFaddin.

The burglary is suspected to have happened Monday around 3:45 p.m.

McFaddin said the two have been staying in Hall County.

Hall County deputies received the “be on the lookout” alert, noticing the red Dodge pickup near Ga. 52 and Ga. 365.

“They went to try and identify the vehicle, and at that time, the suspect fled,” Georgia State Patrol Sgt. Anthony Coleman said Monday.

The pickup truck crashed into a pine tree off Holly Springs Road after the pursuit. Woodruff and Bostick declined medical treatment and transport, Coleman has said.

Woodruff also faces charges from GSP, including driving under the influence and reckless driving, Coleman said.

He faces charges from Hall County including fleeing and eluding, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving, speeding, driving on the wrong side of the road, passing on a solid yellow line, failure to maintain lane, passing on a hill/curve, passing within 200 feet of oncoming traffic, running through a stop sign, illegally passing a school bus, failing to yield right of way when turning left and littering on the highway.

“The deputy pursuing charges will meet with a judge today to obtain warrants,” Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deputy Nicole Bailes wrote in an email.
