Berrien County - A $1,000 reward is offered for information leading to the arrest of a fugitive drug dealer.   An officer pulled over 18-year-old Darrell McCormick Wednesday afternoon for driving with an expired license.

McCormick sped away and led police on a high speed chase through residential areas before abandoning his car in the area of Berrien County Hospital.  "He had no regards for public safety. Children could have been in the yards, there were some children close by where he went through some yards and could have easily ran over some people," said Berrien County Sheriff Jerry Brogdon.

He then fled on foot into the woods, K-9 units were brought in, but the rain covered his trail.  In his vehicle, officers found a suitcase full of marijuana, crack cocanie, and powder cocaine.

It is the largest drug seizure ever for the Berrien County Sheriff's Office.
