The Opp Police Department released the name of the man who fled from a car on Sunday.



“The OPD is currently looking for Troy Heath Grayson for fleeing from officers on foot during a traffic stop on Feb. 19, 2017, at the intersection of Hwy. 52 and Patterson Drive,” OPD Chief Mike McDonald said.

Grayson is described as slender build, 6-foot-1-inches tall with brown hair and brown eyes.

McDonald said Grayson is known to frequent a residence on Wallace Street in the Capital Heights Subdivision.

Grayson is wanted for fleeing or attempting to elude officers, obstructing governmental operations and domestic violence third degree.

The initial incident occurred around 8:30 p.m., when D-Shift officers conducting routine patrol on Hwy. 134 observed a 1990 Toyota Corolla do a U-turn on the highway and then proceeded southbound on the bypass to Hwy. 52.

The patrol unit followed the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. That’s when McDonald said that Grayson fled from the scene on foot.

Anyone with information on Grayson’s whereabouts is asked to call the OPD at 334-493-4511.
