Drug Suspects Run From Police, Get Caught

Multiple law enforcement agencies worked together Friday morning to arrest two suspected drug dealers.

Lawmen followed 28-year-old Nicholas Headden of Wilmington and 29-year-old Bradford Headden of Jacksonville from New Hanover County to Jacksonville, where Jacksonville police pulled the two over. Police say the suspects stopped, but drove off again when officers approached their car.

They were eventually caught and charged with a number of drug related charges, including possession with intent to sell marijuana, also resisting an officer.

"The apprehension of these subjects was a result of the collective law enforcement efforts of New Hanover County SD, NCSHP, OCSD and SBI," Jacksonville Police Chief Mike Yaniero was quoted as saying in a press release.

Both men are being held on $750,000 bonds.
