grams of uncut cocaine after a search of a vehicle involved in a pursuit on Thursday night (1-29-15). Near 11:00 pm,  a deputy on patrol on Enon Road in Winston County noticed a vehicle driving on the wrong side of the road. After activating the blue lights of the patrol vehicle, the suspect vehicle sped off at a high rate of speed.

The pursuit continued onto Sinai Road at which point the driver and a passenger bailed out of the vehicle and ran into the woods before other officers reached the scene.

A search of the vehicle yielded a round of uncut cocaine with a street value of $6000 and a bottle of an unknown liquid substance yet to be analyzed.

Information in the vehicle has led law enforcement to a suspect also identified by the pursuing officer. As of Friday afternoon, contact with the suspect had been made and arrangements are underway for the suspect to turn himself into the Sheriff's Department.
