The Effingham County Sheriff's Office is searching for fugitive Wesley Mark Miller, 32, of Savannah.

On July 13, at approximately 4:00 a.m., ECSO says a deputy stopped a vehicle matching the description of one involved in a possible theft on Highway 30.

As the deputy spoke with the driver, identified as Miller, Miller took off at a high rate of speed almost striking the deputy, authorities said.

A pursuit ensued down Highway 30 and continued onto Nease Road.

ECSO says Miller lost control of the truck, struck several light poles and became trapped inside with live power lines.

He was eventually extricated and taken to Memorial Health University Medical Center with several injuries.

Investigators learned that the truck Miller was allegedly driving was stolen and that he was on Federal probation.

While being treated at the hospital, ECSO says Miller left and has not been seen since.

Investigators say he has connections to Savannah and Tattnall County. 

Miller is wanted for theft by receiving a stolen vehicle, obstruction of a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, felony criminal attempt to commit a crime, possession of tools during the commission of a crime, along with several other charges.
