Wanted Sikeston man leads police on a two-pronged chase

SIKESTON, MO (KAIT) - A Sikeston man wanted for felony stalking and domestic abuse leads police on a two-pronged chase, and it was all caught on tape.

Lloyd Gilmore of Sikeston was charged Tuesday in Scott County Court. Sikeston DPS began searching for Gilmore, who was not in custody at the time the warrants were issued. Sikeston's Criminal Investigation Unit received a tip that Gilmore was at a residence in the 800 block of Ruth Street. Officers began watching the residence and around 1 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, saw Gilmore leave.

One officer then tried to stop Gilmore at the intersection of Ruth and West Street by stopping his vehicle in front of a stop sign. Then, in an attempt to get away, Gilmore puts his vehicle in reverse and rammed into the car behind him.

Gilmore pushed the vehicle back about 50 feet and took off again, nearly hitting the officer waiting in the intersection.

The car chase ended when Gilmore wrecked his vehicle, but it didn't stop there. Gilmore then took off on foot but it wasn't long before police had him in handcuffs.

Officers found marijuana during the foot chase.

Currently, Gilmore is being held on a $5,000 bond for the stalking and domestic abuse charges.

Officials say it is likely that the bond amount will change after the new charges are filed Wednesday morning.
