North Carolina man charged with drug offenses following chase

According to reports by the Wilmington Police Department, a 22-year-old man was taken into custody following a brief foot pursuit. The man is facing several criminal charges, including drug possession, for his alleged actions.

Authorities reported they received calls regarding a suspicious vehicle parked at Greenfield Lake Park. After going to that location, police reportedly found the man inside and asked him to step out of the vehicle. Officers then conducted a search of the man in order to see if he had weapons. Although no weapons were found, law enforcement officers claim they found a bag containing 10 grams of crack cocaine.

The man then reportedly fled on foot. Officers later found him hiding inside of a bathroom at a bar. He was detained and charged with multiple offenses, including possession with intent to manufacture, deliver or sell cocaine as well as resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia and second-degree trespassing. There is no word concerning whether a bond has yet been set in the man's case.

A charge for possession with intent to sell is treated more harshly than simple drug possession in North Carolina. People who are accused have a right to defend against their charges, and they may benefit by speaking to a criminal defense attorney as soon as they are able to do so. An attorney could review the circumstances surrounding a defendant's case in order to formulate a strong defense. When officers stop a vehicle, for instance, they might need to have reasonable suspicion that a crime has occurred or that one is in progress if they do not have a warrant. However, if officers did not have probable cause, then a lawyer could attempt to suppress evidence, which could weaken the prosecution's case against the defendant.
