A Smithfield man is facing multiple charges following a high speed chase Thursday afternoon near Princeton.
Around 5:00pm, a Johnston County SAFE Team deputy attempted to stop a Ford Focus on Holt’s Pond Road. The driver allegedly failed to pull over. Deputies pursued the vehicle a short distance until the driver stopped on Bug Shop Road.
Officers said they located a small amount of suspected methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the vehicle.
The driver, identified as 26 year-old Dylan Scott McLamb of Deer Drive, was charged with fleeing to elude arrest, reckless driving maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance, possession of methamphetamines, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
McLamb was confined in the Johnston County Jail under a $50,000 bond. SAFE Team deputies also impounded the car.
