The Dare County Sheriff's Narcotics Unit tried to stop Gregory Wynn Jr. on Highway 64/264 near the Roanoke Island Fire Department as part of a drug investigation on December 14th.
Wynn fled on foot as officers stopped him. He took off in the direction of Manteo High School, requiring a short lockdown of the high school and Manteo Middle School for precautionary reasons.
The 36-year-old was eventually caught and cocaine was recovered.
