Pursuit in Evansville Wednesday Leads to Two Arrests
Two people were arrested after a pursuit in Evansville this (Wednesday) morning. Evansville Police received a narcotics complaint at the 2100 block of West Columbia. When officers arrived, they approached a vehicle in front of the house, which took off. Police say the vehicle accelerated towards one of the marked patrol cars before a pursuit began. The chase ended at the 3000 block of Hawaii Drive when the driver, 25 year old Marcus McGrew, ran to a nearby trailer where he met a woman standing outside and gave her a kiss. McGrew then surrendered and was taken into custody. He told officers he wanted to kiss his wife before he went back to prison on a felony parole warrant. McGrew was arrested on multiple charges, including drug related charges after officers allegedly found several items his vehicle consistent with the manufacturing of meth. The woman, identified as 21 year old Rianna Burkes, allegedly tried to give officers a false name, but was later identified and arrested on four outstanding warrants.
