Police were led on foot chase Sunday morning through a patch of briars after officers encountered a group of teens at a local apartment complex. The Salisbury Police Interdiction Team was at Clancy Hills Apartment complex responding to complaints from neighbors. Three males were sitting in the breezeway, but got up and knocked on an apartment door when officers approached.
An officer asked if they lived at the apartment and asked for identification. The officer inquired if the men had any weapons or illegal substances. One had a pocketknife and was released. The other two were charged after police found drugs on them.
Kevin Patric Roseberry, 19, of the 100 block of East Newton St., Spencer, was charged with simple possession of marijuana. He was found with one gram of marijuana inside a cigar package. He has since been released from the county jail under a $1,000 secured bond. While officers checked Roseberry, the other teen, later identified as Deshunta Jaquan Hyde, also 19, took off running.
Officers pursued Hyde across the parking lot, jumped a ditch, ran behind two buildings toward Jake Alexander Boulevard and into a wooded area. Officers tried to Taser Hyde, but the barbs did not connect. Hyde ran through briars, but was caught.
Hyde, of the 400 block of Laurel Pointe Circle, Salisbury, was charged with felony possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana and misdemeanor resist, obstruct and delay an officer. Hyde had five baggies of marijuana hidden in a pill bottle that totaled 2.5 grams.
Hyde was issued a $2,500 secured bond and has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center.
