Men involved in police chase returned to Floyd County

January 20, 2020–5:58 a.m.


Two men involved in a police chase that began in Rome and ended in Cherokee County, Alabama in October are now back in Floyd County to face numerous charges.

According to Floyd County Jail records, 39-year old John Thomas Duvall Jr. and 45-year old Bradley Keith Land, both of Rome, threw a 9mm handgun and methamphetamine out of the vehicle during the attempted traffic stop on Drummond Drive.

Charges against the two men include abandonment of dangerous drugs, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, among others.

Both Duvall and Land have been jailed in Alabama since they were caught in the Newberry’s Crossroads community after striking the rear end of a Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office vehicle.
