A Linden man and a Jefferson woman were arrested Thursday night after allegedly attempting to run away from a vehicle containing narcotics.
Charles Adam Bradshaw, 37, of 25529 Amarillo Ave., Linden, was arrested on numerous Polk County and Dallas County warrants and was also charged with third or subsequent offense possession of a controlled substance-methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and interference with official acts.
Paige Leigh McCarty, 33, of 902 N. Pinet St., Jefferson, was charged with interference with official acts.
The incident began about 10:15 p.m. Thursday in the 1700 block of Otley Avenue, where an officer of the Perry Police Department initiated a traffic stop on a 2007 Chevrolet Impala.
The officer made contact with the vehicle’s occupants, Bradshaw and McCarty. Bradshaw allegedly gave the officer “a false name” and then “proceeded to flee from the vehicle,” according to court records.
Bradshaw “was apprehended after a foot pursuit,” according to court records. McCarty also allegedly fled from the vehicle and was caught.
A Dallas County Deputy Sheriff gave “a positive hit on the vehicle from his K-9 for narcotics,” and a probable-cause search of the vehicle disclosed “a digital scale with a crystal like substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine,” according to court records.
McCarty was charged and released by the Perry Police Department.
Bradshaw is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $17,600 cash or surety bond. He is scheduled for an initial appearance Friday in Dallas County District Court.
Bradshaw was arrested July 5 on charges of third or subsequent offense possession of a controlled substance-methamphetamine, felony eluding, first-offense OWI, possession of drug paraphernalia, no license, no insurance, no registration, no plates, failure to stop at stop sign, speeding-100 mph in a 25 mph zone, failure to maintain control and interference with official acts. The case is pending in Dallas County District Court.
