Friday morning traffic stop resulted in a chase for Lawrence County Sheriff's deputies that ended in a narcotics bust.


The Lawrence County Sheriff's office shared an early Friday morning chase that occurred just after midnight.

Deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop on Highway 43 South in Leoma for a traffic violation, but instead the driver, Kyle Davis, 39 of Saint Joseph, and his passenger Jeremy Frazier 34, continued driving turing onto Old Jackson Highway.

The deputies received assistance in the pursuit from a Loretto Police Department officer as the chase continued to Busby Road and then along West Point Road where Davis traveled North to the Highway 64 intersection exiting off of West Point Road onto Highway 64 East.

Davis lost control of the vehicle crashing near the Prosser Road intersection, but neither Davis or Frazier was injured in the wreck.

According to deputies they witnessed the men tossing a number of items from the vehicle, and were able to recover drug paraphernalia items, .5 grams of a substance believed to be methamphetamine, and a loaded Colt Delta Elite firearm that was registered stolen.

Davis was arrested on charges of speeding, driving while license revoked, evading arrest, reckless endangerment, vandalism, felony unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm during a dangerous felony, tampering with evidence, simple possession of marijuana, possession of methamphetamine for resale, drivers to exercise due care, and felony possession of drug paraphernalia.

Frazier was arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine for resale, simple possession of marijuana, tampering with evidence, and felony possession of drug paraphernalia.

Sheriff John Myers said in a statement, “I’m thankful that no one was injured as a result of the actions of these two men. Furthermore, I’m proud of the coordination, professionalism, and temperament of my deputies during this incident. Thank you to our partner agencies for their assistance during the chase and for those who had positioned themselves further ahead of the pursuit to aid should it have progressed to their location. It does not pay to be a drug dealer in Lawrence County. Such as this incident, you will be caught and brought to justice."
