BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Brunswick County man pleaded guilty in federal court on Wednesday to drug charges.
Craig Lakeith Williams was sentenced as a habitual felon to serve at least five and a half years in prison.
Williams pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with the intent to manufacture, sell, or deliver crack cocaine, and one count of felony elude arrest in a motor vehicle.
Williams has previously been convicted as a habitual felon for drug offenses in 2006.
The case stemmed from the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office investigating drug activity in the Bolivia area.
The Brunswick County District Attorney’s office says Williams led deputies on a high-speed chase after they executed a search warrant on his home. He sold hundreds of doses of crack cocaine in his neighborhood during the months before his arrest.
