A man wanted on outstanding warrants and for felony parole violation led authorities on a two county high speed chase. It began around 10:00pm Saturday when a Johnston County SAFE Team deputy attempted to stop a Lexus passenger car for speeding on Earpsboro Road in northern Johnston County. The driver failed to pull over and quickly reached speeds of up to 120 miles per hour as he attempted to elude the officer.
The chase entered Wake County and then back into Johnston County on several rural roadways before the driver was stopped on Antioch Church Road.
Rae’Shod Xzayvier Rogers, 24, of Glover Road, Bailey was taken into custody by officers. Authorities said they found 13 grams of marijuana and several open containers of alcohol in the Lexus. Rogers was wanted in Nash County on warrants charging him with felony larceny and interfering with an electronic monitoring device. He was also wanted for felony parole violation.
Deputies also charged Rogers with fleeing to elude arrest, speeding, reckless driving to endanger, driving without a license, fictitious registration, possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana paraphernalia, and having an open container in the passenger area.
Rogers is currently being held in the Johnston County Jail without bond on the parole violation warrant. An additional $160,000 bond was set on the additional charges.
No injuries or accidents were reported during the pursuit. The car Rogers was operating was seized under the NC Run and Your Done Law.
