On Thursday the Laurel Police Department arrested Jerome Wyatt Jr for felony fleeing law enforcement, possession of cocaine and possession of heroin with intent to distribute. 

This stemmed from a traffic stop  at 6:20 pm in south Laurel.  

While conducting the traffic stop, Wyatt fled from police which ensued a pursuit. 

The pursuit took officials through a highly populated neighborhood. Police said Wyatt was throwing narcotics out of the passenger side window of his vehicle. 

Once Wyatt finally came to a stop, officers took custody of him and recovered a quantity of cocaine. 

The narcotics thrown from Wyatt’s vehicle were also recovered. The narcotics thrown were approximately 2 grams of heroin. 

Wyatt’s bond will be set on Monday in Laurel Municipal Court by Judge Kyle Robertson.
