A 911 call about a man with a gun ended with a high-speed chase, a rollover accident and an arrest.
Goose Creek police responded to the Edmund Road area at about 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 12, after a caller said a man with a gun was outside a residence. Officers spotted a white SUV matching the callerís description nearby, and a high-speed chase ensued.
The driver traveled down Redbank Road at speeds approaching 100 mph, according to the police report. The SUV overturned near Snake Road, and the driver left the scene on foot with officers giving chase.
The suspect was subdued with a TASER and arrested. The Summerville man faces charges of driving under the influence, driving under suspension, failure to stop for blue lights and resisting arrest.
Traffic stop results in drug arrests
A traffic stop Sunday, Aug. 17, on St. James Boulevard resulted in the arrests of two men on drug charges.
Goose Creek police stopped a 1997 Honda Accord just after 7 p.m. for improperly displaying a car dealer tag, according to a police report. A strong odor of marijuana prompted the officer to search the occupants and vehicle, where approximately 1.6 grams of white powder that was confirmed later as cocaine was found.
The two men, one from Goose Creek and the other from Pineville, were taken into custody and charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.
Two arrested after shoplifting call
Two people were arrested on numerous charges Tuesday, Aug. 12, after Goose Creek police responded to a suspected shoplifting at Wal-Mart.
On arrival in the parking lot, officers stopped and questioned a man and woman fitting the callerís description of the suspects, according to a police report.
A search of the vehicle, which came back as stolen from Charleston County, turned up items reported stolen from the store, as well as methamphetamine, cocaine and drug paraphernalia.
The Goose Creek woman and Summerville man were arrested on drug possession charges, as well as possession of a stolen vehicle and shoplifting. The man was also charged with providing false information to police.
