Chase suspect had loaded gun, drugs

A convicted felon is back behind bars after leading authorities on a chase-turned-crash while in possession of a loaded gun and enough marijuana to speculate he was also a drug dealer.

Ronald Evansmoore Woodard, 40, of Cornelia, was arrested Saturday night, March 31, after he initially tried to flee a Habersham County Sherif’s Office (HCSO) deputy who attempted to pull the suspect over during a traffic stop.

“The driver fled onto Lat Wilson Road turning back toward Demorest-Mt. Airy Highway,” he said.
