ALTO – A high-speed chase through Cherokee and Nacogdoches counties Wednesday night resulted in the arrest of a 26-year-old Alto man for drug possession and evading arrest charges.

The suspect - Seth King Davis - also is being investigated on counterfeit charges because two small allegedly counterfeit bills were found in his possession, lawmen said.

Cherokee County Deputy John Jenkins noticed a car idling near the old Palestine Cemetery near Alto Wednesday night, Cherokee County Sheriff James Campbell said. When the deputy approached the vehicle, the suspect fled, traveling down county roads into Nacogdoches County near Douglas then returning to Cherokee County near the Forest Community.

The chase ended when the suspect crashed into a fence along the Old Wells Road, the sheriff said.

Bonds were set at $5,000 on each charge and the department is still investigating the counterfeit bills, the sheriff added.
