Driver leads deputies on chase from checkpoint

A West End man faces multiple charges after allegedly leading deputies on a vehicle chase Saturday.

Moore County Sheriff Ronnie Fields said his department was conducting a license checkpoint in West End in the early morning hours on June 10.

“While Deputies were checking each vehicle that drove through the checkpoint, a vehicle refused to stop when directed to and fled the area at a high rate of speed,” said Fields. “Deputies pursued the vehicle and during the pursuit the offender damaged personal property while traveling through the Seven Lakes West Community.”

Twenty-one-year-old Matthew Hubbard was stopped in Candor in Montgomery County and was arrested.

He was placed at the Moore County Detention Center under a $50,000 secured bond and charged with felony flee to elude arrest, injury to personal property, reckless driving to endanger, fail to obey traffic officer, resisting public officer, fail to heed light and siren, fail to stop at stop sign/flashing red light, fail to maintain lane control, and exceeding posted speed.

The suspect is due in court on July 12 and is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
