SALISBURY — A man who led Rowan County Sheriff’s deputies on a chase early this morning faces charges ranging from possession of drug paraphernalia to felony fleeing to elude arrest.
Brandon J. Stamper, 31, was charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, felony fleeing to elude arrest and three citations for failure to stop for a stop sign, not registering a vehicle with DMV and not having financial responsibility (for registration).
Early this morning, the Sheriff’s Office arrested Stamper at the intersection of Second Street and North Enochville Avenue.
Around 12:30 a.m, a sheriff’s deputy attempted to stop a silver sedan that did not stop at a stop sign at Eagle Street and Spring Garden Avenue.
Deputy B.M. Long began pursuing the driver when he accelerated on Eagle Street, a report said.
Stamper was traveling at speeds of more than 100 miles per hour on Smith Road, then began crossing the center line using the oncoming travel lane.
A chase ensued and Stamper turned onto Enochville School Road and eventually turned behind Enochville Elementary School.
He threw something out of the car, a Yoo-Hoo drink can. He told officers he only threw out a pack of cigarettes.
A police dog was called in and soon recovered the can that had been used as a smoking device. A small amount of marijuana was found in the can, according to the report.
Stamper remains in the Rowan County jail under a $3,500 bond.
See Friday’s Post for more details.
