Last week, officials in Livingston Parish were involved in two high-speed chases. The first one ended with two arrests. The second, which reached speeds of 133 mph, ended with officials searching for Curtis Savoie, who has now been identified by Killian Police.

Killian Police Officers believe Curtis Savoie was driving a black Infinity involved in the chase. He has been living in the Killian area, but is from the Independence area. Police say he is known to transport narcotics and to carry a firearm. 

The chase after Savoie happened on Jan. 29, 2016.

Officials say a black Infinity driven by Savoie was seen driving 82 miles per hour on Old Highway 22. An officer pulled over the vehicle, but once the police car came to a stop on the shoulder, the driver of the Infinity drove off.

Killian Police said the Infinity was going 133 mph on Blood River Road and that is when they stopped the pursuit. Deputies with the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office began to help in the chase, but the speeding vehicle was able to get away.

Savoie is wanted for aggravated flight from an officer and several other traffic violations. Police say if you see Savoie, do not approach him, just call 911 or your local police department.
