NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C.---A man is in jail this evening after a chase that led Public Safety across state lines.

Officers say the man stole a 2001 Chevy Lumina from a Bi-Lo in North Augusta. When police tried to pull him over, he fled down Georgia Avenue, into Richmond County, and then back into Aiken County on Sand Bar Ferry Road.

On Highway 421 the man ran from the vehicle into the woods, and officers caught up to him a short time later.

He is charged with larceny of a motor vehicle.
