DORAVILLE, Ga. -- Doraville Police arrested a man who may be behind dozens of burglaries across metro Atlanta.
The suspect, 35-year-old Choice Phillips, was taken into custody Wednesday after a high speed chase. Officers responded to a burglary alarm at Pinetree Plaza in the 5100 block of Buford Highway. When they arrived, they spotted a car speeding away from the shopping center.
Doraville Police officers initiated a chase, following the vehicle as it traveled north in the southbound lanes of Buford Highway. The driver led police to the I-285 and I-85 south ramp, where he crashed the car. He was treated at an area hospital, then taken into custody.
Investigators identified the driver as Phillips and found more than $2,000 worth of beauty and hair supplies in his wrecked car, according to Doraville Police Officer Gene Callaway.
