A Wayne County man faces felony drug charges for possession of methamphetamine after fleeing on foot from authorities armed with warrants for his arrest.
Sampson County deputies secured warrants on 36-year-old Randolph Scott Williams of 144 Holloman Lane, Dudley, after he attempted to flee a traffic stop on April 23.
Two days later, with warrants in hand, Wayne County deputies received information that Williams was at a home on Eagles Nest Road in Dudley. When deputies arrived, Williams reportedly ran out of the back of the home and into a wooded area. When he emerged from the woods, Wayne County deputies arrested him on the Sampson County warrants.
Williams was taken to the Wayne County Magistrate’s Office and charged with two felony counts of possessing meth and one count each of felony fleeing to elude arrest, resisting a public officer, possessing drug paraphernalia, driving with a revoked license, violating probation and using a red or blue light.
He was booked under a $33,000 secured bond.
