A local man, who was out of jail on a $100,000 bond, was arrested again for drug and weapon charges on Saturday.
Clark Duvaul Frye Waddell II, 26, from Southern Pines and a Garner address, was arrested by Southern Pines Police and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, felony possession of marijuana, possession with the intent to sell/deliver marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, maintaining a vehicle for controlled substances and resisting arrest, said a news release from the Southern Pines Police Department.
The police attempted to stop Waddell, aka Mooks Rasta, near East Indiana Avenue and Fort Bragg Road, but the suspect proceeded to drive through several residential streets before stopping on East Hedgelawn Way.
Waddell jumped out of the car without putting it in park, and fled on foot. The vehicle rolled into a utility box.
The police chased the suspect as he threw a large bag of marijuana and a firearm, said the news release.
When officers caught the suspect, they recovered 57 grams of marijuana, a loaded Glock .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol, $2,476, and digital scales.
