THOMASVILLE, N.C. -- Police are searching for a man who they say led them on a pursuit, driving into a yard and crashing into a trampoline, according to a Thomasville police report.

The report said Patrick Sean Gober was running from police on Broad Street on Tuesday around 3 p.m.

At 210 Broad St., Gober drove off the roadway and hit a parked car and a trampoline, the report said.
