A high-speed chase Wednesday resulted in the arrest of a Roanoke Rapids man who already has pending court dates on drug charges.

City County Drug Force Captain A.M. Harris said in a statement Agent D.J. Epperson attempted to stop a vehicle traveling west on Highway 158 for driving left of center around 5:45 p.m.

The driver of the vehicle was later determined to be Kevin Lee Andre Davis, 30, of Airbase Road.

Davis reportedly did not stop for the agent and sped up. He began passing other vehicles and took Epperson and Harris on a chase from the area of Little Deep Creek Road to the 3000 block of Roper Springs Road.

During the chase Davis stuck his hands out of the window several times in what Harris said he believed was an attempt to get rid of items in the vehicle. Agents could find no items following a search after the stop. Deputies from B Squad of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office and additional agents of the task force assisted in that search.

Once the chase ended, Davis was ordered out of the vehicle but was eventually escorted out.

Harris said in the statement agents have dealt with Davis in the past in traffic stops and search warrants.

In 2015 he was charged with heroin trafficking following a stop and last year was charged with more heroin counts.

Epperson arrested and charged Davis with flee to elude arrest with motor vehicle, resisting a public officer and fail to heed light or siren.  

He received a $10,000 bond and December 20 court date.
