Driver Arrested For Crack Cocaine Possession

Natchez Trace Parkway

National Park News

On June 10th, field training ranger Brent Mahle and trainee Brad Jones observed a vehicle whose driver was not wearing a seatbelt.  When they attempted to stop it, the driver fled down the parkway. A brief high-speed pursuit ensued that ended when the driver arrived at a dead end and attempted to flee on foot. He was apprehended during the subsequent foot pursuit and taken into custody without further incident. A search of the bag that he fled with revealed two and a half pounds of marijuana, 40 grams of crack cocaine, and $2,000. A check of his criminal history showed a previous arrest for possession with intent to distribute. This was the second felony drug arrest by Jones last weekend. He also had four DUI arrests (two of them felonies) and two other PCS (possession of a controlled substance) cases during the first two weeks of this training phase.
