Officers attempted to stop the vehicle after it had exited the interstate, but the driver fled, leading officers on a chase that ended back on the interstate.

The chase ended without incident at Exit 61 near Gautier when Redmon was taken into custody. A passenger in the vehicle was taken into custody, but later found not to be wanted.

Redmon is wanted in Maine in connection with a homicide that happened earlier this year.

D’Iberville Police Department, Jackson County Sheriff’s Department and Harrison County Sheriff’s Department all assisted in the case.
