GREENWOOD TOWNSHIP — Area law enforcement officers are searching for a 35-year-old man who escaped from police following a high-speed chase that crossed county lines early Thursday morning, Sept. 10, according to Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast.

Levi Christopher Frasier, who is known to reside in the Muskegon and Newaygo County areas, fled from an Oceana County sheriff’s deputy shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday in the area of 184th Avenue and Garfield Road following a traffic stop, Mast said.

After stop sticks were used to deflate the tires on his blue 2004 Pontiac Grand Am, Frasier fled on foot in the area of Fruitvale and Brickyard roads in Muskegon County. Frasier remained at large as of late Friday afternoon, Sept. 11, and he is a “concern for public safety,” the sheriff said. “He has a known history of fighting with police.”

The Oceana County Sheriff’s Office has recovered his vehicle, which contained over 17 pounds of marijuana, suspected methamphetamine, MDMA, multiple marijuana edibles and multiple oil forms of marijuana, Mast said.

Frasier was last seen wearing blue jeans and a red and black plaid shirt. His height and weight were not immediately available.

During the chase, Frasier was traveling 100 mph on M 20 in Oceana County, Mast said. After he turned south onto 132nd Avenue near Ferry, he began throwing items out of his car. He also attempted to “blind” the chasing deputy by shining a bright light from his car, the sheriff said.

The traffic stop was initiated due to an “equipment violation” of his car. When asked for his driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance, Frasier told the deputy, “‘I don’t have that,'” Mast said.

When fleeing from the traffic stop, he hit the front bumper guard of the deputy’s patrol car.

Several other agencies assisted including the Muskegon County Sheriff’s Office, the Newaygo County Sheriff’s Office, Michigan State Police and the Fremont Police Department. K-9 units were also used to track the fleeing suspect, but were unable to locate him.

Frasier was spotted later Thursday morning by a Muskegon deputy, but he continued to flee on foot, Mast said.

If anyone has any information, they are asked to contact the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office at 231-873-2121.
