A foot chase to apprehend a 36-year-old man with an active parole warrant led LaGrange police to the suspect's home, where they allegedly found various drugs, drug-related objects and a new suspect, according to a release.
LaGrange residents Justin Holliday, 36, and Carlos Freeman, 37, face two counts each of trafficking cocaine, possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, one count each of possession of drug-related objects and obstruction of a police officer and one count of participation in criminal street gang activity, police said.
At about 8 p.m. Wednesday, officials with the LaGrange Special Investigations Unit and Crime Suppression Unit spotted Holliday, a man who they knew had an active patrol warrant out for his arrest, according to the release.
As authorities attempted to place the suspect in custody, he ran into his residence at 104 Lafayette Court and police chased him.
