WCSO: Suspects Arrested After Fleeing Traffic Stop

WCSO: Suspects Arrested After Fleeing Traffic Stop

Three people are apprehended following a Wayne County police chase.  Saturday, patrol deputies with the Wayne County Sheriff’s office pulled a vehicle over for a revoked license plate.  The deputies reportedly spotted an AR-15 long rifle and illegal narcotics in plain view.  The vehicle then fled the scene leading deputies on a pursuit through the southeast area of the county. The State Highway Patrol assisted and deployed a spike strip, partially disabling the vehicle.  The driver swerved in an attempt to strike the trooper.  When the vehicle finally came to a stop, the driver fled on foot but was eventually tracked down by a K-9 unit.  The driver, 33-year-old Phillip C. B. Maddox of Rick Square, NC, was arrested along with the two passengers, 30-year-old Justin C. Ellis of Dunn and 19-year-old Shelby L. Meade of Kenly.  Maddox, Ellis and Meade were placed into the Wayne County Detention Center.
