Carroll County Sheriff’s Reports


Multiple Charges — Alexander Ross Dean, 38, of 95 Elaine Street, Atwood, was charged with evading arrest, reckless endangerment (two counts), aggravated criminal trespass, vandalism, possession of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, and reckless driving following a Dec. 24 high-speed pursuit.

According to the report by Deputy Steven Scott, he and other deputies entered into a pursuit of a white truck driven by Dean on Highway 77 after a citizen advised deputies the vehicle had earlier hit another vehicle and crashed through a gate on private property on Dunn Road. The pursuit continued through portions of Carroll and Gibson counties for approximately 45 minutes, reaching speeds over 100 mph. Scott reported Dean attempted to strike another deputy’s vehicle and almost hit Deputy Roger White as he was trying to deploy spike strips. The pursuit ended when Dean’s vehicle crashed into the brick wall of a carport in Milan. Dean was found to be in possession of a small amount of a substance that field-tested positive for meth, several needles, glass pipes, and digital scales. The 2019 Nissan Frontier driven by Dean was found to have been stolen from a residence on Highway 77 in Atwood.
