Roanoke man arrested, charged after vehicle pursuit from Franklin County to Roanoke County

A Roanoke man has been arrested and charged after leading Franklin County deputies on a high-speed chase through Franklin County and into Roanoke County, according to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities said on Thursday night shortly before 7 p.m., deputies tried to conduct a traffic stop on a Chevrolet Tahoe that had a license plate tag that did not match the one on file. However, the driver, later identified as 40-year-old Travis Devon Pryor, of Roanoke, didn’t stop and proceeded to speed away from deputies, leading to a pursuit.

Law enforcement then continued after the vehicle through Franklin County and into Roanoke County but had to end the pursuit due to heavy traffic in the area.

  • Franklin County:
    • Felony Eluding

    • Intentional Damage of Property over $1000
  • Botetourt County:
