On Aug. 8, Currituck County Deputies took over a pursuit of a stolen vehicle fleeing from Chesapeake Police Department.  Patrol deputies pursued Ciera Scott, 28, from Norfolk, VA for approximately 3 miles traveling south on NC168 in Moyock.  They took Scott into custody after she crashed into a ditch near the intersection of Survey Rd. and NC168.

Scott had fled from multiple agencies in Virginia prior to entering North Carolina.  After crashing the stolen vehicle, Scott exited the vehicle wielding a knife at the deputies.  A patrol supervisor deployed his Taser and incapacitated Scott while other units secured the arrest. Scott was then transported to the Currituck County Detention center and processed for felony flee to elude arrest, careless and reckless driving, possession of a stolen vehicle, no operator’s license, and assault with a deadly weapon.  She was also processed for felony charges from Chesapeake that stemmed from the pursuit.

Ciera Scott was turned over to the Currituck County Detention center under a $75,000.00 secured bond. We are thankful for the positive ending and the partnership with the Chesapeake Police Department.
