FIRST ON 3: Felons caught after high-speed chase Saturday night
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Two felons were arrested after avoiding a police check point in Navassa Saturday night.
The Northwest Police Department was holding a check point on Cedar Hill Road in Navassa when they said two cars attempted to make a u-turn before the check point. Police said one of the cars stopped, but the other led a high-speed chase through Navassa and into Leland, where the Leland Police also pursued the chased.
Police say the car wrecked at a dead end near Bluff Drive. Both the passenger and the driver had serious, but non-life threatening injuries and were transported to the hospital.
In the car the police found two guns, one they say was stolen.
The Driver, 27-year-old David Crummy, is still in the hospital, but warrants have been placed for his arrest once he is released. Along with various traffic offenses, he will also be charged with possession of a firearm by a felon.
The passenger of the car, 28-year-old Kashaar Hill, was released from the hospital early Sunday morning and booked shortly after on a $20,000 secured bond. He was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon.
A Police spokesperson says Crummy is a validated gang member, while Hill is actively on probation. Both men have previous weapons charges.
The car was also seized by police.
