LINCOLN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -
A Vale man who fled his vehicle after crashing on Beam Lumber Road was arrested Saturday on traffic and drug violations, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.
On October 2, a Lincoln County Sheriff's deputy was traveling westbound on Highway 27 near Houser Farm Road when he observed a vehicle speeding in a 55 mile-per-hour zone. He turned around and attempted to stop the vehicle which made a turn onto Beam Lumber Road.
The officer temporarily lost sight of the vehicle in a curve and as he went around the curve he saw the vehicle had skidded into the yard of a residence in the 6400 block. The car was still running and the lights were on but the driver had fled the scene. The driver left behind three baggies of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, deputies say.
The State Highway Patrol and Union Fire Department assisted deputies in searching the area for the driver but they were unable to locate him. The follow-up investigation led to the owner of the vehicle and eventually the man deputies say was driving the car.
Patrick Wayne Johnson, 40, of West NC 27 Hwy, in Vale, was arrested on one felony count each of probation violation, possession with the intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance and maintaining a dwelling/vehicle for a controlled substance.
He is also charged with one misdemeanor count each of careless and reckless driving, possession of drug paraphernalia, domestic criminal trespass, injury to real property, driving while license revoked or suspended and speeding, the report states.
Johnson was placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $51,500 secured bond.
