A 41-year-old unnamed man has been arrested after fleeing authorities and having meth and heroin in his car.
In a statement from the Lebanon Police Department, Saturday evening, the Lebanon Police, Laclede County Sheriff’s Office, and Missouri Highway Patrol attempted to stop a car they believed was suspected of trafficking narcotics.
Officials say that during the traffic stop, the driver attempted to flee from the scene but came to a stop after Lebanon Police Officers used tire deflation devices. The man then led authorities on a short foot pursuit before being arrested.
Law enforcement then searched the car and found 1,600 grams of meth, 12 grams of heroin, items consistent with the delivery of controlled substances, and just over $5,200.
