Suspect leads deputies on chase in stolen car, authorities say

A man accused of leading deputies on a high-speed chase on county roads was arrested Tuesday by Moniteau County deputies.

According to officials, deputies were in the Latham area investigating suspicious activity when they saw a newer-model Mazda car with incorrect license plates.

As deputies tried to stop the car, they said the driver fled at a high speed.

They followed the car for several miles down Highway W and several gravel roads in the area. The car continued onto Highway CC heading east until the driver turned onto Watson Road.

Deputies said the car missed a corner on Watson and went down a private road, running through a steel gate.

The car ended up in a wooded area and the driver, later identified as David Singleton, ran from the area.

After leading deputies on a foot chase through the woods and through a creek, Singleton was taken into custody by Moniteau County deputies said.

Deputies said they found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in the car that Singleton was driving.

The car was reported stolen from Columbia.

Singleton also had several felony warrants out of Boone County for felony resisting arrest, failing to appear, trespassing, child neglect and a probation violation.

Moniteau officials said there will likely be several felony warrants for Singleton out of Moniteau County that may include failing to yield to an emergency vehicle, resisting arrest, tampering with a motor vehicle, property damage and possession of methamphetamine.
