COCHISE COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Thanks to the Cochise County Sheriff's Office Geronimo air support unit a stolen vehicle was stopped and a suspect arrested. 

On Sunday April 22, 2018 at approximately 7:45 am, the CCSO received a call from a man who said he was being kidnapped at gunpoint.

The call was triangulated and a location near Willcox was identified as the call origination, according to a CCSO news release.  The caller was able to provide basic details about the vehicle he was in which led deputies to observe a similar vehicle at a gas station off of Interstate 10 near Willcox.

Sheriffs Deputies were attempting to approach the vehicle when it left the area, speeding onto I-10 heading westbound. 

Arizona Department of Public Safety Troopers and CCSO deputies were able to get a license plate on the vehicle which has previously been reported stolen.

The driver continued speeding on I-10 in an attempt to elude pursuing law enforcement officers, and making a determination of the best option to secure public safety, law enforcement dropped back near Texas Canyon and allowed the suspect vehicle to continue on the interstate.

CCSO Geronimo air support took over the pursuit at Texas Canyon, providing law enforcement units in the Benson area the exact location and movement of the suspect vehicle, which ultimately turned into the Loves' Truck Stop on I-10 and State Highway 90.

The suspect vehicle pulled into the parking lot assuming that he was no longer being chased, when undercover AZ DPS trooped and marked CCSO deputies surrounded the vehicle and took the driver, and sole occupant, into custody.

It was determined that the suspect, 34-year-old Brandon Williams of Salome Arizona, had stolen his mothers vehicle and called the Sheriff's Office for an unknown reason.

Williams was transported to the Cochise County Jail and booked on charges of Motor Vehicle Theft, Felony Flight from law enforcement officers, and Endangerment.
