Suspected drug runner identified as driver in high-speed Livingston chase
KILLIAN - Police identified the driver in a Friday vehicle pursuit.
Tuesday, the Killian Police Department said Curtis Savoie is wanted for, among other traffic crimes, aggravated flight from an officer. Police said Savoie is known to transport narcotics and to carry a firearm. He resides around the Killian area, but is originally from Independence.
"If seen do not approach, call 911 or the local police department," the department posted on its Facebook page.
Officers said Savoie was behind the wheel of a black Infiniti clocked at speeds exceeding 130 mph last week. After first trying to stop Savoie on Highway 22, officers chased him through low-lying Livingston Parish and close to the town limits of Springfield when he was able to get away. In the original WBRZ.com post that broke the story, police said speeds were too dangerous to continue the pursuit.
