Ridgeland police hunt fleeing felon

RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Ridgeland police Chief Jimmy Houston says his department was tipped that a man wanted in Rankin County for felony fleeing was spotted at a Ridgeland business.

The man, Omar Kazery, has warrants for his arrest on traffic and harassing phone call charges and he is known to run from police.

Kazery did that this afternoon, taking off on foot, when Ridgeland officers pulled over his truck.    There was never a vehicle pursuit.

The search near School Street between Highway 51 and Wheatley Street was eventually called off when officers were unable to find Kazery.
