A man being sought by Limestone County deputies in connection to a stolen car and high-speed chase Monday afternoon is now in custody, in part because of the efforts of a Limestone County Commissioner's mother.
Cameron Blake Powers, 24, had fled on foot after the crash near the intersection of Snake Road and E and L Lane. A passenger in the wrecked vehicle was taken to a hospital for treatment of her injuries.
The car Powers was driving, a silver Dodge Charger, was reported stolen Monday morning from a house on Chris Way.
After realizing the crash had ended at his mother's house, Limestone County's District 3 Commissioner Jason Black told his mother to be on the lookout for Powers and protect herself if he came to the door.
“Well, guess who showed up?” Black said.
He said Powers, who was shirtless and had no shoes, came to Marcia Black's house and asked to use the phone. Jason Black said his daughter and nephew were also present when Powers came to the house.
Black said his mother pulled a gun on Powers and told him to lay down while the Sheriff's Office was called. When Powers made a run for it, Black said his mother fired a shot over Powers' head. He was later found by deputies running along a creek not far from the scene of the crash.
