A Hull man was arrested on drug possession and other charges after a chase recently on Woodale Street. Donald Steven Syfrett, 35, 610 Ed Coile Road, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of tools for the commission of a crime, fleeing or attempting to elude, criminal interference with government property, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, reckless driving and a probation violation.

According to the incident report, officers were stationed at Joy Baptist Church on Glenn Carrie Road last week waiting to do a fourth amendment search on Syfrett’s residence when they spotted Syfreet going by in a white Chevrolet Suburban. When he saw them, he allegedly put his vehicle in reverse in an attempt to elude them and then turned and fled down Woodale Street. He drove to the deadend on the street and skidded into the grass, turning into officer Shawn Rhoades’ patrol car.

Syfrett then allegedly exited his vehicle through the driver’s side window and ran across the hood of the patrol car. Rhoades chased him through the woods before Syfrett stopped and took an offensive stance. Rhoades tased him and he and another officer placed Syfrett in handcuffs. While searching Syfrett for weapons and contraband, they found a large Ziplock bag containing suspected methamphetamine and a spoon. A black case containing four plastic bags with methamphetamine and a hypodermic needle were also found on him.

In another arrest, two people were taken into custody last week after officer Josh Fowler pulled over a vehicle reportedly involved in a theft.

Darrell Cutrer, Jr., 24, 83 Old Church Road, Athens, was charged with child or youth restraint not used properly, driving while license suspended or revoked, open container and theft by taking.

Latasha Shanta Wilbon, 32, 42 Sidetrack Circle, Comer, was charged with possession of marijuana less than an ounce, giving false name, address or birthdate to law enforcement officer and reckless conduct.

According to the incident report, after Fowler spotted and stopped the vehicle on Spring Circle in Comer, he spoke with the driver (Cutrer), who provided him with a license that had been suspended. As he was talking with Cutrer he noted that the passenger (Wilbon) appeared to be “moving around as if she were placing something in her 3-year-old child’s pants, who was sitting on her legs. When asked for her name, she said “Nicole Pass.” When she and the child were asked to step out of the vehicle, officer Fowler retrieved a plastic bag from the child’s pants pocket which tested positive for marijuana.

Wilbon said she gave a false name because she had a warrant out of Clarke County.
