A Cole Camp man was arrested after a vehicle pursuit Monday in Sedalia.

According to a Pettis County Sheriff’s Office news release, deputies conducted a traffic stop near the intersection of Broadway Boulevard and Marvin Avenue in Sedalia. As deputies were gathering the driver’s license and proof of insurance from the driver, identified as Joshua Canbrana, 20, deputies could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

Deputies asked Canbrana to step out of the vehicle for a vehicle search. As they attempted to open the door, Canbrana locked the door, rolled up the window and left the area at a high rate of speed.

Deputies then pursued his vehicle through the Woods parking lot onto Hancock Avenue. During the pursuit, items were being thrown from Canbrana’s vehicle. The pursuit ended at the intersection of Fifth Street and Lamine Avenue where Canbrana was taken into custody.

Canbrana was placed on a 24-hour hold pending charges from the Pettis County Prosecuting Attorney. He has since been formally charged with resisting arrest and was issued a $1,500 bond, cash or surety. A hearing or arraignment had not been scheduled at press time.
