PREVIOUS STORY: Hamilton County Sheriff's deputies are searching for a suspect wanted for stealing vehicles and fleeing police.  

Deputies went to 8903 Bramlett Road around noon Friday after receiving information a stolen vehicle could be found there.  When deputies arrived they found an individual identified as Thomas Hughes.   

When Hughes saw the deputies he got into the vehicle he was working on and tried to leave. He ignored commands to stop the vehicle instead he drove the vehicle toward the deputies.  

The deputies took evasive actions to avoid being hit by the vehicle with one of the deputies firing his weapon. 

Hughes managed to get away but the vehicle was found a little while later.  Deputies received information that Hughes ran into a wooded area.  

It was discovered that the vehicle Hughes left the scene in was also stolen, along with the another vehicle at the Bramlett Road address. 

If you see Hughes contact the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.
