Lt. Jeff Caponera, public information officer for the Anna Police, released the name of the Sherman man jailed two weeks ago after leading police on a high-speed chase from Anna to Sherman, where he was captured and jailed.


Cody Lane Collins, 18, of Sherman, remains in Collin County Jail with a total bail set at $45,500 on four charges stemming from the chase and arrest.


Jail records show those charges to be: evading arrest or detention with a vehicle, possession of marijuana less than 2 ounces, tempering with physical evidence with intent to impair, and unlawful possession of firearm by a felon.


The chase started when an officer on patrol spotted a red Kia 4-door sedan speed past him. When the officer turned on his lights and sirens to get the driver to stop, the driver, Collins, sped up, and the chase began, reaching speeds of more than 100 mph. The officer saw items being thrown out of a window, and when those were recovered, police reported, the discarded items were a gun and drugs. The car stopped after entering the Sherman area, and Collins and other occupants took off running on foot. Caponera said police were able to catch and arrest Collins.
