Jason Alexander Devalle

Police are on the hunt for Jason Alexander Devalle who fled this morning when authorities were trying to serve a warrant on drug charges at a storage unit off Highway 41 in Catoosa County.

When authorities arrived at the storage unit where they believe the man has been staying, Devalle ran into the woods, Catoosa County Sheriff's Capt. Scott Jordan said.

A helicopter was sent out to search for Devalle, but agents with the Lookout Mountain Judicial Task Force and Catoosa County Sheriff's Office haven't found him, Jordan said.

Police are deciding whether to continue the search today or to wait, but they have the Devalle's information, he said.
