LELAND, NC (WWAY) -- Three men were arrested Tuesday night in Leland after a brief car chase on Highway 74/76 that ended when officers performed a PIT maneuver.

According to the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office, the driver of the car, 20-year-old Kyeric Tashaun Sweet of Wilmington will face several charges. Officers said they suspected he was transporting heroin around 9 p.m. between New Hanover and Brunswick Counties. After the chase ended, they said they found 90 bags of heroin inside the car.

Sweet is accused of having, trafficking and selling heroin, running to elude arrest and reckless driving. Malik Dion Matthews, 17, of Wilmington and Antwon Trelle Hansley, 19, of Rocky Point are also accused of possessing and selling the drug. Officers add that there also might be an investigation into whether Sweet is involved with gangs.

I knew it!!

I knew ignorance would show itself again on this topic. To you Aunty, if you "gave a care" as you say then maybe these boys would have had some type of sense of pride for themselves and would have been trying to be productive members of society. Maybe you should take these comments personally and take a look at the mistakes that were made during childhood or these guys. As an Aunt you could have taken an active role in the lives of at least one if these boys and been a positive role model. Instead you say we should be talking about somebody else because you don't " give a care". It really validates all the comments on here and proves that children are a product of their raising.

sad ppl

So quick to put down our people..seen about two or three of the same charges by other people and know negativity there posted...wow write your complaints there too maybe someone will give a care!!!!

Good job!

Thank you Leland PD!

Ain't no thank you Leland you need to watch yo mouth because yall dont even know him talking bout thank god like yall need to really watch yall mouth I ain't even playn nomo that's my boy and I dont play now have a nice day and dont comment nothing else I won't like please and thank you

Good raising and education equals sucess!

Yes, it is a THANK YOU for these drug dealers being caught and drugs taken off the street. THANK YOU for the officers involved in the pitting manuever for stopping these guys and eliminating harm from being caused to innocent drivers on the road.

Also, THANK YOU to all of those who are educated and make wise decisions for their life. THANK YOU to all of the parents raising their children right so that they will know right from wrong and choose to do the right thing. THANK YOU to the parents who set good examples!

THANK YOU to all educators and tax payers for allowing NC citizens to go to earn an education so they don't have to turn to hussling and selling drugs, gangs and stealing to make a dollar to turn around and do the same thing. THANK you for all who are knowledgable and have not only common sense but morals and respect. Thank YOU to all of the people who choose to post on news topics as this without the uneducated use of words such as "Ain't no thank you", "watch yo mouth", "playn nomo" and "nothing else".

Nice

He isn't yo boy nomo. He belongs to the state of North Carolina now. Maybe they will be able to teach him some of the lessons he missed outside of prison. If parents wouldn't be mad at anyone other than the horrid citizens that they have created, and make their kids take responsibility for their actions, they may be able to stay out of prison. Good people don't ride around with 90 bags of heroin. That's just a fact that is indisputable even by the most ignorant of society, but I'm sure somebody will say it was just a mistake made by a good kid. Ignorance is something that can only be hidden for a short time. So let's see who shows theirs first

Sweet Family

People, please encourage your children to get an education. They really do need it.. Even if you the parent dont have an education; Encourage your children to get one!! Break the cycle... Just because MOST of YOUR FAMILY is or was involved in criminal activities doesnt mean that you have to be.. or does it? If you are doing something illegal and you KNOW that its ILLEGAL.. WHY are you running??? You are doing criminal activities NOW DO THE TIME... If noone ever told you.. I will... In LIFE you have Choices and Consequences.
