Routine traffic stop leads to chase, guns, drugs in Madison

Local News

Three people are arrested and charged after a routine traffic stop in Madison led to a chase, a discarded firearm arm and a female passenger dumping marijuana in a Sam’s Club trash can.

A Madison police officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle occupied by the three, which was driving on a flat tire on Madison Avenue, Friday around 10:30 a.m. 

“The driver, Randy Dejuante Stuckey of Jackson, failed to stop and continued north on Grandview Blvd.,” the police report says. “His vehicle finally came to a stop at the Sam’s Club Tire Center.”

Passenger  Kendrit Alexander Crosby of Taylorsville, was “immediately taken into custody for disorderly conduct after he failed to comply with the officer lawful order.”

The third passenger, a woman named Chesha Antoina Lewis of Jackson and an employee of Sam’s Club, fled the stop and went inside Sam’s Club where she allegedly placed marijuana in a trash can, before being arrested. 

Stuckey, the driver, discarded a firearm on scene and then drove away from police.

Officers pursued him as he traveled east on Madison Avenue toward Highway 51. 

A spike strip was then deployed to stop him, but he swerved, narrowly missing the trap.

Stuckey reached Ridgeland City limits and then led police on a brief foot pursuit.

Officers then brought him down near Ridgeland City Hall.

Stuckey is charged with Felony Fleeing a Law Enforcement Officer, Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon and multiple traffic violations.

Kendrit Crosby is charged with Disorderly Conduct Failure to Comply.

Chesa Antoina Lewis is being charged with Possession of Marijuana.

All three are held at the Madison County Detention Center until their initial appearance in Madison Municipal Court.
