Manatee County, FL-  Manatee County deputies are searching for a suspect they say sped away during a traffic stop.

It happened early Tuesday morning at the 500 block of Cortez Road West in Bradenton.  According to a Manatee County Sheriff's Office report, deputies made a traffic stop in connection to a stolen car investigation.  The occupant of the car deputies were attempting to pull over, instead, sped away.  A pursuit was initiated with k-9 and vehicles.

The car was last seen heading across the Manatee County line into Sarasota.  The pursuit was then called off.  Anyone with information is urged to contact the Manatee County Sheriff's office.
