JACKSBORO (WATE) - Two Georgia murder suspects were arrested Thursday night in Campbell County.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says Quovadis Darion Arrington, 23, of Acworth, Ga., and Jumar DeVon Greer, 19, of Woodstock, Ga. were wanted by authorities in Cherokee County, Ga. for homicide and carjacking.

Trooper Adam Bowman first stopped the pair's 2007 Dodge Magnum for speeding on northbound Interstate 75 in Loudon County around 7:34 p.m. Thursday.

The occupants said they were heading to Chicago, but Trooper Bowman discovered discrepancies in their story.

Though Bowman found a non-extraditable offense on Greer's record, he let them go with a warning citation.

About 20 minutes later, dispatchers were notified to be on the lookout for a vehicle connected with a carjacking and homicide in Cherokee County, Ga., which turned out to be the same vehicle and suspects that Bowman had stopped moments earlier.

Trooper Brad Keaton spotted the vehicle on northbound I-75 in Anderson County at mile marker 112.

Trooper Keaton followed the vehicle until backup units arrived. Anderson County officials stopped all northbound traffic several miles before a planned traffic stop in Campbell County.

Trooper Keaton and THP Lieutenant Johnny McDonald stopped Arrington and Greer's vehicle at the 140 mile marker around 9:14 p.m.

Both Arrington and Greer were taken into custody without incident. They are awaiting extradition in the Campbell County Jail.
