Accused Drug Dealer Breaks Into Home To Hide From Cops

A man wanted on drug charges is now accused of running from police trying to arrest him and breaking into a home.

Carteret County lawmen say they spotted Jerrell Stewart, 20, on the front porch of a home on Marsh St. in Beaufort. After seeing police, the Morehead City man ran and broke into a home. Authorities later found him hiding in a bathroom where they arrested him.

Stewart posted bond after the Tuesday arrest.

    I am not surprise that he is out on bond. I was vacationing in the town of Beaufort in July, driving 9 mph on main st. with vehicles, bikes and pedestrians every where, the beaufort police said I was stopped for going to slow. The speed limited is 25 mph, to fast for such a busy st. But I was a EMT-I and not a lawbreaker. The police wasn't afraid to walk up to my vehicle.

    Another outstanding citizen whose life-long ambition is GETTING OVER ON THE MAN. Jobs aren't a viable option. Too much trouble. They want everything given to them.

    Yes, you're right. People shouldn't make comments. Their opinions and thoughts aren't wanted. You can easily see this by the number of hits and comments left of this website. Most of the people don't leave comments. Just look at the Ayden school vandalisem story...242 comments....that's not many, is it?

      What's sad? That he broke into somebody's home to hide or that he's a drug dealer with a long history running from the police? or that drug dealing gets you in trouble with the police in the first place? What?

        Whats sad is that he was probably charged with misdemeaner breaking and or entering since he had no intent to commit a larceny or a felony there in. The law is set up all wrong , but alas it is the only system we have.

    At least he picked the right house to break into. If he had chosen poorly, like my house, getting out on bond wouldn't be an option. The cemetary doesn't set bond, it just keeps you, period.

    Out on bond after being sought for a warrent, arrested for drug use, breaking into a house, but still allowed to post bond?! Sounds like connections in the courthouse to me.

      I know it sounds wrong but every CRIMINAL has the right to have a bond set except for a murder charge.

    Poor fellow. He couldn't qualify for welfare due to his gender. I suspect it never crossed his mind to get a job so the only option he had was to deal drugs.

    Ok. He had a warrant for his arrest. He ran from the police. And broke into a house. Now he is out on bond. Now his next charge will be FAILURE TO APPEAR. If he ran once he will run again.
