Deputies and Narcotic Agents with the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office, working the Dulatown Community in Lenoir, arrested a drug offender on federal probation after a short chase, officials said.
Rodrick Duane Dula, 34, of Lenoir, was arrested Friday and charged with multiple traffic and drug violations.
The incident started when a deputy and his trainee were conducting surveillance and saw Dula traveling at a high rate of speed after leaving a suspicious area. The deputy pulled in behind Dula, who then ran the stop sign at the intersection of Bradford Mountain and Dulatown Road.
They attempted to stop Dula, and the chase began.
It ended abruptly when Dula crashed his vehicle not far down the road. He was then arrested without further incident.
Officers searched Dula's car and found marijuana packaged for sale, as well as an additional bag along the roadside not far from the crash site that officers believe he tossed out during the chase.
A little under a half pound of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and $399 in cash were seized. The drugs seized have a value of $1,400 according to North Carolina State Guidelines.
Dula was charged with one count each of felonious possession with intent to sell/deliver marijuana, felonious maintain a vehicle to keep/store a controlled substance, careless and reckless driving, failure to stop for a stop sign, speeding, and fleeing to elude arrest.
He was taken to the Caldwell County Detention Center under a $80,000 secured bond.
