Motorcyclist Found With Drugs Following Pursuit

A motorcyclist is apprehended after leading officers on a pursuit. Last week Thursday, members of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office attempted to stop the motorcycle for a Chapter Twenty Violation.  The motorcyclist did not stop and fled from the deputy.  The deputy was then joined by ACE Team and DWI Task Force members in the vicinity to assist in the pursuit.  The vehicle chase continued for approximately 20 minutes and concluded with the suspect jumping from the bike and running into a wooded area.  However, 31-year-old Thomas S. Gardner, Jr. of Mount Olive was quickly located and taken into custody.  A search of Gardner allegedly led to the discovery of narcotics and contraband.  Gardner was also reportedly found to be in possession of additional illegal narcotics when he was brought to the Wayne County Detention Center.  He was held under a $200,000 secured bond.
