ANDERSON Co., S.C. (WSPA) — Deputies say a wanted suspect is in custody after fleeing a traffic stop in a stolen car.

James Thaddeus Robinson was seen about 3:50 a.m. Tuesday morning in a red Ford Fusion with an improper tag on E. River Street in Anderson. Deputies attempted a traffic stop, but say Robinson fled the scene.

The chase ended about 30 minutes later on Trail Road at Wilson Road outside of Belton when Robinson’s car got a flat tire after striking a curb.

Robinson is jailed at the Anderson County Detention Center. He was served with two outstanding warrants for grand larceny.  Deputies say charges are also pending for failure to stop and possession of a stolen vehicle.

The vehicle Robinson was driving at the time of the pursuit had been reported stolen from Greer, according to deputies.

The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said Robinson took a vehicle from an Upstate car lot on Dec. 28 and was on an Upstate “crime spree” with warrants for his arrest in the city of Greenville and Greer and that he was considered armed and dangerous.
