WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A manhunt yesterday ended with two people arrested and charged with multiple offenses. This is not the first time the two men have been in trouble with the law.

Wilmington Police say they were called to the Best Western Plus on Market Street Monday evening after someone reported seeing someone selling drugs out of one of the rooms. A police spokeswoman says when officers arrived a foot chase started after the two suspects took off toward the Lennon Woods Apartments.

Police arrested Kashar Hill and Rodney Tyson and charged them with several crimes including resisting arrest. Hill was also charged with carrying a concealed weapon and obstruction.

Both men have had several run-ins with law.

Tyson has previous charges of trespassing, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a revoked license.

Hill has also been previously charged with driving without a license. He is out of jail on bond.

Tyson was released from jail but was arrested again Tuesday on a parole violation.

More than a dozen officers were involved in the search yesterday.

Both men are due back in court in December.

    Something I have always had a problem with, and I see now it is a problem here to. I was a corrections officer for 21 years in Indiana, I know of hundreds of cases where people were arrested for crimes, only to bond or be released by a judge, then be arrested three days later for parole violation. The problem is they know that arrest is coming, they are obligated to report to their PO and when they do they are arrested, for parole violation. This is crazy, we had one guy arrested for possession charges, and he was supposed to report, but instead he went to a bar and shot 5 people, three of them died. My point is we need better communication between agencies, if he is going to be violated then hold him no bond; this is simply a no brainer.

    …”communication between agencies”?

    As a CO in the state of Indiana, did you EVER get pissed at the judges that had the power to keep them incarcerated, yet pushed then back out into society to commit crime over and over again? Only axxin’…

    Your point is as I perceive… you’re as stupid as the criminals AND the judicial system. Bless your heart though, as misguided as it may be. Why didn’t you ever stand up, yet still complain?

    Tell us more about your “hundreds of cases” in detail… Better yet, tell your DA. If you complain, then bring a solution to the table!

    That is shocking and unexpected.

    A “frequent flyer” of the criminal justice system and another example of why I would prefer my (tax) money be diverted to the building and staffing of more prisons instead of providing others housing, medical care, education, transportation, job training, daycare, cellphones, etc, etc.

    I’ve read your post twice and I still cannot make any sense of it. Completely incoherent. Either get some sleep or stay off the pipe.

    I agree. Guest-o-matic made no sense at all. What the hell was he
    rambling about.
