When the driver pulled into the parking lot of a local nightclub, he fled the scene on foot. After a short foot pursuit and subsequent search, the suspect was not found. The suspect’s vehicle was then searched.

Trooper Harman seized 1.142 kilograms of cocaine and 11 1/2 pounds of marijuana, along with four cell phones. As no arrest was made and the suspect is still at large, further investigation is pending.
