SALISBURY — A 911 call about an armed man led Salisbury Police to charge a local man with weapon-related and drug offenses.

Salisbury police charged Jeddie Ronald Bowman II, 54, of the 200 block of East Horah St., with felony possession of a controlled substance on penal institution premises, misdemeanor carrying a concealed weapon, misdemeanor consuming on a public street and misdemeanor resist, obstruct, delay an officer.

Police searched an area behind Christo’s Family restaurant and found the man sitting behind a dumpster drinking a beer in a brown paper bag, said police spokesman Lt. Lee Walker.

The man got up and began walking from the area. An officer attempted to catch up to him, and he took off running, Walker said. Police began a short foot chase with the man, who tossed a gun aside. Police then drew their guns and ordered the man to stop. He kept running and fell into a bush.

He was arrested in the 100 block of South Long Street. Police found the 38-caliber revolver that the man ditched, Walker said.

Upon searching him in the jail, officers found one gram of marijuana in his left sock.
