  • Agents with the North Louisiana Drug Enforcement Bureau arrested a local man Monday afternoon following a car chase.
    Morehouse Sheriff's Office Major Rose Worley said the agents received information regarding drug activity out of an "old school-type car." Agents spotted the car in question on Cahoon Street and began to initiate a stop. The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Desmond Campbell, fled from the agents, traveling onto Hwy. 139, turning on Naff Street and again on Martin Luther King, where he ran three stop signs. He was then stopped on Smith Street, where he refused to exit his vehicle. He was removed and placed under arrest.
    During the pursuit, Campbell was seen throwing suspected narcotics out the window of the moving vehicle, which were recovered and logged as evidence. He was charged with aggravated flight, three counts of running a stop sign, possession of schedule II narcotics (crack cocaine) with intent to distribute and two counts of possession of schedule I narcotics (marijuana and Ecstasy).
