Tiffany Nicole Strozier, 25, was charged with the sale of methamphetamine, fleeing/attempting to elude officers, reckless driving, passing in a no passing zone, driving too fast for conditions, a stop light violation and driving on a suspended license.


A woman led Coweta County deputies on a high speed car chase Thursday, which ended in her vehicle being PIT maneuvered and her being arrested.

Around 4 p.m., the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office Crime Suppression Unit planned to catch a suspect, Tiffany Nicole Strozier, 25, after she sold methamphetamine to a confidential informant, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office. Investigators observed Strozier make the drug deal and pulled behind her for a traffic stop on Calumet Parkway.

However, Strozier punched the gas and took off, Yarbrough said, exceeding speeds of 70 mph. Strozier turned onto Millard Farmer Industrial Boulevard and sped up to more than 90 mph.

The chase ended near the intersection of Roscoe Road when Coweta Deputy Trent Hastings performed a PIT maneuver on her Chevrolet Impala and disabled her vehicle. Deputies and investigators were able to detain Strozier.

Inside her vehicle, scales and the money from the drug deal were discovered, Yarbrough said, and she sold more than 3.5 grams of meth in the deal. Strozier was charged with the sale of methamphetamine, fleeing/attempting to elude officers, reckless driving, passing in a no passing zone, driving too fast for conditions, a stop light violation and driving on a suspended license.

She was additionally charged with a second count of sale of methamphetamine for an earlier drug deal on Oct. 4. According to Yarbrough, the CSU did not arrest her on that date but waited until Thursday.
