Year old traffic case draws arrest

MOULTRIE — A Doerun man accused of running away from police following a March 2011 traffic stop in Southeast Moultrie was arrested Monday on charges related to that incident.

An officer attempted to stop a gray Oldsmobile on March 23, 2011, near the intersection of Eighth Street and Fifth Avenue after noticing the driver was not wearing a seat belt, Moultrie Police Department reports said.

The driver, identified by police as Rico Juwan Hill, accelerated and turned into a residence a few blocks away and abandoned the car in the yard, the reports said.
