Police chase and pot bust in T'ville

Thomasville- Drug agents in Thomasville are celebrating a pot bust after a hairy situation.

     Squad Commander Kevin Lee says Cedric Robinson led them on a car chase throughout the city. When agents finally stopped the 24 year old, he refused to get out. One of the agents broke a window on the car, and Robinson took off again. The agent was dragged a short distance, but was not hurt.

     Lee says Robinson was finally stopped at a cul-de-sac. "We had to forcibly remove him from the vehicle. Then we placed him on the ground and he wouldn't comply with our commands. We finally did get him handcuffed," he says.

     Lee says agents found more than a pound-and-a-half of marijuana. Robinson is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, felony obstruction, and felony attempting to elude. He's also charged with two counts of misdemeanor obstruction of an officer.
