A Jefferson City man was charged Wednesday after a chase with authorities.
Darryl Mallory, 29, is charged with forgery, fraudulent use of a credit device and resisting a lawful detention.
A Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement shows officers went to Phillips 66 on Stadium Boulevard for a report of a man, later identified as Mallory, pumping gas for multiple subjects.
Officers talked with Mallory, who reportedly gave them a false name. When they attempted to detain Mallory, he fled on foot. Officers pursued him and eventually arrested him after deploying a Taser.
Officers searched Mallory and reportedly found he was in possession of multiple gift cards to gas stations. Authorities said Mallory had tossed many gift cards during the foot pursuit. They later found all of the cards had a zero balance.
Four of the cards were found to be debit/credit cards belonging to Central Bank customers. Bank officials advised authorities none of the customers was local, but they would contact the victims.
