LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) – A Columbus man led Lowndes County law enforcement on a brief chase before his eventual capture.
On Friday, officers attempted to make a traffic stop on a blue Chevrolet Tahoe near 10 Avenue and 14 Street South on the south side of Columbus.
The driver, Rodriguez Dismuke, 47, failed to stop and the pursuit began.
Officers say Dismuke threw out a large package of marijuana, which agents recovered near the intersection of 13th Street and 11th Avenue South.
Dismuke was eventually taken into custody in the 2400 block of Washington Avenue after being blocked in on a congested street.
Officers also found a large sum of cash, which was found on the ground outside the Tahoe.
As a result, Dismuke was charged with felony eluding and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
