A Garysburg man was arrested on cocaine and driving charges after a Halifax County Sheriff’s Office deputy spotted him driving a vehicle with fictitious tags and following another vehicle too closely.
Chief Deputy Scott Hall said the arrest occurred around 10 a.m. today when Deputy D. Bybee was patrolling in the area of Highway 158 near First Street in Weldon.
The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Trevon Davis, 26, initially failed to stop when the deputy activated blue lights and siren.
After driving for approximately 1.3 miles and throwing a substance from the vehicle, Davis stopped in Garysburg.
The substance was later located and identified as cocaine.
Davis was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, driving while license revoked, and failing to yield for blue lights and siren.
He received a $2,500 secured bond and December 1 court date.
